    Background Information
    A slightly lighter Monastrell/Syrah blend from the ‘Goru’ winemakers.
    Marionette is made from a delicate blend of selected Monastrell and Syrah grapes, chosen among the best plots, to express a bright and vivacious wine.
    The harvest was both manual and mechanical with fermentation and maceration, depending on the variety, was made in contact with the shins in stainless tanks for 15-25 days. Throughout the entire process the temperatures were kept below 24-26ºC. The wine was then aged in American oak barrels for 2 – 3 months.

    Tasting Note
    2-3 months ageing in American oak giving its intense, potent fruit some toasted notes. Smooth in the mouth with a forceful structure, it is vivid, fruity and spicy with delicious tannins.
