The Art Terra emerged out of a continuous search for the truest expression of the terroir. The grapes were hand-harvested a few days before total ripeness. They are partially de-stemmed and then the three grape varieties are fermented in stainless steel “lagares” with mechanic punching down. Fermentation occurred through indigenous yeasts. Grapes were pressed after eight days of fermentation. The wine is then aged for six months in old 105 gallon French oak barrels.
This wine pairs well with Iberian tapas, roasted meats, and dried fruits.
