Chief Winemaker: Luis Sanchez Sanchez
Luzon Organic is red wine produced with grapes grown from organic agriculture under strict organic regulations established in European Union. It comes from one of Jumilla's oldest estates and is certified organic and environmentally friendly.
In this vineyard there is no use of chemical products, synthetic pesticides, or weed-killers in their daily work. Instead they use environmental friendly organic practices and products that do not harm people's health, or the natural environment. The harvest took place during September 2008 and the grapes were handpicked. Maceration lasted approx 2 weeks with the temperature being maintained below 28C and the wine was macerated in contact with the skins before being deposited in stainless steel tanks where the malolactic fermentation took place.
In the glass you will see a deep red purple with a violet rim. On the nose, the wine is clean, fragrant and fruit driven, with intense smells of red fruits, powerful and very inviting. On the palate the wine is full, smooth and warming, excellent fruit and well balanced acidity, mature tannins and a good length on the finish. Best served at approx 16-18C.
Drinking well this season; and over the next 2-3 years.
