A perfume made from the most aromatic and fruity raw material. This Brandy does not need to be old to have a very high quality. Once our “Cosecha” has been distilled, the most delicate of our sweet wines, it has been aged in French Oak on its own lees. It is reminiscent of the wine from which it comes, because we seek in it “fruit purity” instead of “old age” and that purity is evident in every sip. There are no excesses of oak that hide the clean and ripe fruit from which it comes ...

When making our“ Cosecha ”wine, exposure to the sun slowly and gradually dehydrates each grape, evaporating water and concentrating natural fructose. Only 200 liters of must are obtained for each ton of fresh grapes, which ends up giving the wine an extremely low final yield. This wine acquires 13% natural alcohol when fermenting in French Oak barrels. Then we stop the alcoholic conversion process by covering the barrel in a hermetic way, which favors the preservation of fruit aromas and flavors, which we do not want to be lost due to oxidation.
Finally we distill this wine and let the result rest again in wood.
In this extremely delicate elaboration, we limit the aging to 8 months in the French Oak barrel of the same wine that we have distilled. , avoiding excess oak and astringency -which we could only balance after many years of aging, in other barrels that contained our Pedro Ximénez Muy Viejo-. On the other hand, in the same barrel of our “Harvest”, on the “lees” of its wine fermentation and with a continuous battonage that gives it flavors and aromas of ripe fruit, this Brandy -after a gentle filtration-, opens to a universe of perfumed sensations, full of flavors and aromas other than oak. This elaboration is based on such a delicate raw material that it is not worth waiting for the wood to hide its fruity emotions ... It maintains the alcoholic degree at 40%, so that, despite that fruitiness, it maintains its character of pure and authentic Brandy .
VISUAL: Very light straw gold, clean and bright, subtly oxidized, but without the typical iridescence of old age typical of the soleras system. Visually it transmits a lot of purity of origin, since there are not even rims that are easily identifiable, nor noticeable differences in tone in the glass, both with the glass still and in rotation.
OLFATIVE: A standing glass is a clear distillation with the aromas of the wine that gives rise to it. There are notes of ripe plum but not raisined. By rotating the glass, memories of green apple arrive, without the alcoholic volatility, unbalancing the exuberant and clean fruity manifestation of this very particular distillate.
GUSTATIVA: The obvious manifestation of its alcoholic degree, it does not detract in any way the fruits that are enhanced in the back of the palate, as well as the volume in the mouth acquired with the battonage of lees. The aftertaste is long, although very delicate and subtle. Nothing heavy, nice and extremely silky.
