Vintage 2012


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.

"2012: an incredible kaleidoscope of aromas for this year's Tinata, which fluctuates between floral, fruity and aromatic. A jewel-in-the-crown in waiting, with a great future ahead of it."
