FICHA DE CATA
Wine from grapes grown in our “Las Lomas” vineyard in Fuenmayor, aged over 50 years. Located on a steep slope of clayey-calcareous soil, which results in a contained production of remarkable quality.
The varieties that make it up are: 85% Tempranillo and 15% others.
For several generations we have been making wines in our cellars, where we currently apply the most modern production systems.
The grapes are harvested by hand by winery staff, with extensive experience. With a selection in the vineyard of the highest quality bunches.
Subsequently, the grape is destemmed (so that the herbaceous parts are eliminated) and crushed, thus being ready to be transferred to the fermentation tanks.
Once in them, alcoholic fermentation begins, with a rigorous temperature control around 28ºC. In this phase, periodic pump-overs and delestages take place; applying a prolonged post-fermentative maceration.
Once the alcoholic fermentation is over, malolactic fermentation takes place, thus ending the biological processes that transform the grapes into wine.
After several cleaning rackings, it is placed in fine-grained French and American oak barrels, where it remains for two years, racking every six months.
Subsequently, it is bottled without any treatment, so with the passage of time, it may present some precipitate, which does not reduce its quality at all. Remaining at rest for a long time, before going on the market.
