The eponymous 2016 El Sequé is pure Monastrell from old vines on sandy soils in the village of Pinoso. It fermented for ten to 12 days in open-top stainless steel tanks after a 24- to 48-hour cold soak with pigeage and pumping over. It matured in oak barriques until malolactic completed... 2016 is a moderately fresh year within the warm climate zone, approachable, with less ripe aromas found in warmer years, with more upfront fruit. However, there is good balance in the palate with fine tannins and a chalky texture, with a little more acidity and tension. The oak is perfectly integrated.
