Cuvée Cecilia 2015 50 cl.
Este tinto dulce natural de vendimia tardía está elaborado con uvas de Syrah, pasificadas en la viña, a las que se le sumó mosto de Moscatel de Alejandría. Rafael Orozco, enólogo de Finca Sandoval, y Víctor de la Serna, su propietario y alma mater, concibieron fortuitamente este vino pensando en el público femenino que visitaba la bodega. Una combinación singular de embriagadoras notas dulzonas de frambuesa, higos y moras.

Opinión de los críticos
The one sweet wine here, which Víctor de la Serna says has the spirit of a Ruby Port, is the 2015 Cuvée Cecilia, named after Víctor's daughter. It's a fortified red with some 160 grams of sugar produced with 70% Syrah and 30% Moscatel de Alejandría, which obviously gives it a different aromatic and floral profile. The Syrah was picked late, fermented a little and then fortified; the Moscatel must was added later and the blend was put to mature in used oak barrels for 18 months. The nose is an explosion of rosemary, thyme and black olives, with hints of sun-dried tomatoes and a floral touch. It's very aromatic and expressive. The palate showed some tannins and doesn't feel too sweet, as if the tannins compensated the sweetness and also the freshness of the Moscatel. The nose is like a Mediterranean sweet red, but the palate is closer to a Port. 1,200 50-centiliter bottles were filled from two 300-liter barriques in March 2017.
