Cenit

Our Icon wine takes its name from the highest point in the sky. Every December 21, the southern hemisphere experiences the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. That is the day the sun reaches its zenith (Cenit in Spanish) over our vineyard, and we celebrate by making the final blend, which aims to express the synergy of the best characteristics of each variety selected for this wine.

Tasting Notes

Deep, dark and dense color, highly vivid and attractive. Its brilliance and deep ruby notes are accented when the glass is tilted.

The intensity of its nose is astounding since it is not necessary to get close in order to appreciate the first fragrances emanating from the glass. It is extremely difficult to express the great aromatic richness Cenit has. The aroma begins with ripe, red fruits, dried fruits and dried whole peaches that mingle with mocha, coconut and vanilla notes followed by an undertone of forest fruit laced with a touch of fallen leaves, providing a connotation of elegance and finesse.

In the mouth, it stimulates all our senses. Its full body has a sweet yet mature tannin. Highly concentrated, its potency is presented as a gloved hand due to its fine smoothness. Wonderful persistence and an incredibly long finish.
