Aged 22 months in French oak barriques (70% in new oak), the Aster Crianza has an intense ruby-red colour with a cherry-red rim; clean and bright. The wine stands out for its high aromatic intensity, with marked aromas of red fruit (raspberries, blueberries, redcurrants and red plums), giving way to a wide variety of balsamic notes (vanilla, hot milk cake, nutmeg, caramel and hazelnut). Balance and freshness stand out in the mouth, with pleasant tannins and a smooth, rounded finish that invites you to enjoy the Aster Crianza.
Aged 16 months in new French oak barrique. The Aster Finca El Otero is a clean, intense, ruby-red wine with a garnet rim. Intense aromas, with notes of currants and black cherries, stewed prunes, white pepper, liquorice and fennel; underscored by hints of pastry, ground coffee beans and cedar. The wine feels very full in the mouth, with ample freshness thanks to a good balance between acidity and volume, elegant tannins and a powerful yet friendly mouthfeel. Big finish, with outstanding notes of peppercorns, cedar, dark fruit and forest floor. The Aster Finca El Otero can be enjoyed now but it has great laying-down potential.
