THE HARVEST

Grapes were generally very healthy, more concentrated in flavour and more balanced alcohol compared to other areas of lower altitude. Grapes come from vineyards in Toledo of an average age of 40 years, they express the terroir thanks to their adaptation to the soil over a long period. The soils are calcareous-clay and the Tempranillo grapes usually mature first and the others later, grapes are picked by hand.

VINIFICATION

65% Tempranillo, 35% Merlot. Upon inspecting the quality of the grapes, they are de-stemmed, crushed and pre-macerated at 15ºC for 24 hours. They are later fermented and macerated over 10 days at a constant 25º C.
