Vintage 2011


Sensuality and Mediterranean aromas are what define this elegant cuvée of Syrah and Grenache that combines complexity and crispness. The grapes grow around a hundred yearold cork oak on one of our best slopes, bordering a stretch of typical Mediterranean maquis, which gives the wine its characteristic aromas of lavender, rosemary and thyme. Syrah gives this wine its spicy character and full-bodied structure, Grenache its crispness, elegance and engaging fruity note.

"2011's Tinata is beautifully straightforward, with crisp hints of pomegranate, red berries and a notable mineral component: it has all the characteristics it needs to become a great classic, you just have to be patient enough to leave it be for a while in the cellar."
