Wine Facts


Winemaker Notes
Part of the grapes underwent the traditional process of foot treading in granite "lagares". The remaining grapes were vinified in 5-ton stainless steel vats, with controlled temperatures and mechanical remontage for 9 days. After the malolactic fermentation all the wines were racked into French oak barriques where they stayed for 18 months.
