2012

The 2012 vintage was warm and very dry: it was considered as having one of the four warmest summers in the last fifty years, with only less than 200mm (8 inches) of total rainfall which barely provided half of the vine’s needs. After a winter with limited rainfalls and low temperatures, an early spring arrived, quite cold and very dry. The bud burst started with approximately 10 days of delay, as well as flowering, in a very warm June. Veraison took place in August, under extreme temperatures. Harvest finally started on the 17th of September and finished on the 13th of October.

Numanthia 2012

Color: bright and dominant deep red with thin layer of intense ruby and bluish nuances.
Aroma: intense and fresh wine with notes of ripe black fruit, berries and cassis accompanied by species such as black pepper and toasted notes in addition to cocoa. Numanthia 2012 is a sweet wine with a minty freshness which highlights its complexity.
Mouth: the entrance is sharp and direct but gentle. On the palate, Numanthia 2012 is very structured and its evolution is vigorous and round. It presents flavors of cassis, cherries and coffee. The finish is fresh and persistent.


July 2014. Launched on markets in November 2015 after 18 months of ageing.


Termanthia 2012

Color: deep dark red, with thin layer of purple nuances.
Aroma: fine and elegant wine with notes of small red fruits and hints of Madagascar vanilla well integrated, increasing its complexity when blended with cigar box and milk chocolate aromas. After oxygenation, floral and aromatic herbs such as thyme, pepper and licorice notes also develop.
Mouth: the entrance is smooth, silky and splendid. It surprises for its purity. The evolution in mouth is a great balance of creaminess, elegance and freshness. The fine tannins of French oak act as pillars of a sophisticated architecture, highlighted by hints of cherries, cranberries and toasted cocoa beans giving way to an everlasting end.


July 2013. Launched on the market in November 2014 after 18 months of ageing.
