Achelo 2020 is an intense ruby-purple color. On the nose, aromas of red and black fruit merge with floral sensations of violets, delicate spicy hints of pepper and vanilla. Its palate is sweet and pleasant with silky tannins. A lengthy finish and pleasant aftertaste highlight fruity notes of currants, plum jam, licorice, and delicate hints of vanilla.

Production Notes

Grapes were destemmed and gently crushed. The must was transferred into stainless steel tanks where pre-fermentation cold maceration was carried out to enhance fruity notes. Fermentation took place at temperatures that did not exceed 25 °C (77 °F) over a period of approximately 10 days. 70% of the wine was then transferred into second-fill and third-fill French oak barriques, where malolactic fermentation took place. The remaining 30% was transferred into stainless steel vats.
