A wine made with the Pinot noir variety from the Santa Creu section of our Sumarroca estate near Sant Sadurní d’Anoia.
The 2012 vintage was characterised by a winter with very mild temperatures and little rainfall. In fact, it did not rain from November until just before bud break. Despite the mild winter, bud break was a few days late because the early spring was a little cooler than usual, with rain that meant plant growth was adequate. After the middle of spring, temperatures rose and rainfall dropped sharply. However, there was light rainfall amounting to 25-35 litres in May, June, July and August, which, together with relatively low humidity, meant that ripening and health were adequate. As for dates, both veraison and ripening were at normal times.
An intense, highly complex wine. with both floral and fruity notes, such as violets and strawberries. Soft on the palate, elegant, full-bodied and smooth. Persistent strawberry flavoured undertones on the palate and in the aftertaste.
