GARNACHA – 2017

CARIÑENA PROTECTED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN

THE VINEYARD

The vines are distributed around different districts of the Cariñena PDO, at an average altitude of 600 metres. The soil is made up of pebbles from alluvial deposits and gravel. These are stony soils, which produce low yields, bunches with smaller and more concentrated grapes and of greater aromatic intensity.

THE HARVEST

We decide the optimal moment for the harvest based on regular controls of the ripeness of each plot.

The grape harvest is carried out mechanically at night, when temperatures are milder, which reduces oxidation and helps keep all its sensory potential intact. This low-temperature harvest yields more complex and fruity wines.

PRODUCTION

Made from the Garnacha grape variety. The de-stemmed grapes are placed in stainless steel tanks where they are subjected to a pre-fermentation cold maceration process for 5 days. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out using native yeasts at a controlled temperature. Upon completing the fermentation, it is devatted and pressed with a vertical hydraulic press with a wooden bucket. Subsequently, it undergoes malolactic fermentation.

THE 2017 VINTAGE

Spring was marked by the frost at the end of April, accompanied by a prolonged drought throughout the agricultural year, all of which caused a lower yield, and resulted in fruit of good quality.

TASTING NOTES

Cherry red colour. Intense bouquet of ripe forest berries with hints of raspberry, blackberry and blackcurrant. On the palate it is fresh, broad, meaty, balanced and full-bodied. Long-lasting aftertaste, highly persistent.
