Delit is a wine from a single plot
of old vines of Monastrell more than
50 years old and of low production.
The balance of the vineyard allows a
late harvest at its optimum point,
and its elaboration aims to convey
that balance and complexity by
seeking a very elegant wine.
It is a high expression wine, but
both its delicate vinification, in
open barrels with only gentle
maceration, and its subsequent aging
on the lees, seeks to enhance that
roundness and balance that makes it
a quality wine for all audiences at
the same time. It is a wine that can
be consumed on any occasion. Which
is true, provided it is in good
Delit covers both the demand for the
Monastrell variety and the demand
for ‘top’ Mediterranean wines at a
relatively affordable price. Focused
on the wine list of the top
hospitality outlets, where it can
also be served by the glass and for
sale to the public in specialized
and gourmet shops.
It is placed in the market with a
two-year difference between its sale
and its year of vintage. Its’
optimum time of consumption varies
between two and five years after
GRAPE: 100% Monastrell
VINEYARD: Monastrell vines over 50
years old located in Salinas, near
the Vinalopó Valley. On sandy, open
ground. Low vines in goblet strictly
rainfed only with a production
limited to 1,5 Kg per vine.
VINTAGE: 2019 was a year in which it
rained during the harvest at the
beginning and end of September.
Despite this, it was a very good
year for our Monastrell, in which it
cooled down after the rains (we had
no sanitary problems) and the final
part of the ripening was slow. It is
very noticeable in the tension and
freshness of the wines.
ELABORATION: Hand-picked in October
2019, it was macerated for 10 days
in open 600 L barrels, with very
gentle punch-downs. At the end of
malolactic fermentation, the wine
was racked to the new 500L French
oak barrels and aged with its own
lees and fine chardonnay lees. The
ageing lasted 12 months.

Delit is a very elegant wine, both in the
nose and mouth, resulting from the
combination of the Monastrell, the
Mediterranean climate, the low production,
the maturity of the grape and its
vinification on the lees.
VISUAL: Deep colour, medium to high
intensity, denotes a compromise between
vividness and elegance.
NOSE: In the nose, the tertiary aromas are
fused with pastry notes and dairy hints with
red fruit aromas, giving rise to an
enveloping and very round aroma.
MOUTH: In the mouth it has an elegant
entrance and a tasty pass, leaving a
pleasant sensation. The balanced acidity and
well-integrated tannins stand out. The long
aftertaste strengthens the creamy and
pleasant feeling, inviting one to continue
prolonging the pleasure.
