It is the most modern wine of our family. We have tried with this wine to boost the fruit of every variety of grapes and combine it with a light note of barrel.
The grapes are picked up manually in14kg boxes, and once in the winery, the most healthy and optimally matured clusters are manually selected. They are destemed, gently pressed and gravity carried (without pump) to the different fermentatition tanks. The grape juice of each variety, ferments and macerates itself apart from its lees in a controlled temperature of 25-26º C, using for this process inox steel tanks. During this process (c.a. 17 days) 2 “flush - over” and 1 “delestage” are daily made in order to extract the “sweet” tanins from our geapes along with their flavor and colour potential. Later on, the malolactic fermentation is done in order to increase “mouth thickness” and stabilize the wine microbiologically. The “crianza” is done separately for each variety and using for each one the most suitable origin and barrel toast. The aging period has been 10 months. 73% of the barrels used in the aging process come from the Allier, Tronçais and Centre French forests and the remaining 27% from the American Oaks of Tenesse area. The toast degrees are 98% medium, and the remaining 2% high toast. The barrels age is 1, 2 and 3 years. The grapes for this elaboration come from aged vineyards: 70 years old Grenache, 50 years old Carignen and about 25 years old the remaining varieties.
