THE HARVEST

Grapes are generally very healthy, more concentrated in flavour and balanced alcohol compared to lower altitude growing areas. Vineyards of an average age of between 60 and 100 years old and property of the Muñoz family. Tempranillo clones and vines with deep roots and well adapted over the years to the warm days during the maturity period, the cooler nights at this altitude (700 meters +) promote good acidity and delicate aromas.

 

VINIFICATION

100% Old Vine Tempranillo. The grapes are inspected upon arrival at the winery. Afterwards, they are de-stemmed and crushed. The fermentation and maceration takes place in stainless steel deposits over 15 days at a controlled temperature of 25º C.

THE AGEING

Following fermentation, the wine is aged in 80 percent American and 20 percent French oak for 12 months. It rounds off its ageing with a minimum of six months in the bottle.
