Technical Sheet

Reserva
Grapes

Tinta Fina (Tempranillo), Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The grapes used for this wine are a selection of our vineyards from Peñafiel and Castrillo de Duero at 920m. and 870m. respectively.

Harvest

The grapes are harvested at its optimum maturity stage, by hand using 15Kg cases.

Elaboration

After a previous selection of grapes at the vineyards, once in the winery, it is passed through a grain sorting table, and therefore they are softly de-stemmed and slightly crushed.

Fermentation

Alcoholic – We make a cold soak for 24h. in an inert atmosphere for a better extraction of fruity aromatic compounds from the grape.  Ferments during 12 days at a controlled temperature set at 28ºC, in truncated cones stainless steel tanks of 17.000L. of capacity and we extend the post-fermentative maceration to 25 days or even more.

Malolactic – It remains in the tanks with its fine lees during 45 days, and we do a gentle battonage for increasing the volume in the mouth.

Barrels

Aged in French and American Oak Barrels for 15 months.

Tasting notes Intense black-cherry colour with good depth of colour and hardly any signs of evolution. Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality.
