WINEMAKING AND AGING
The whole process started with the selection of the grapes to be used for
the wine, which, after reception, were destemmed and crushed and put
into the fermentation tanks. Alcoholic fermentation was initiated with
the introduction of selected yeasts and it lasted 5-6 days at around 26ºC.
Next came the malolactic fermentation and a first racking.
Finally, the wine was clarified, filtered and bottled.
It is ruby coloured, with notes of red berries. In the mouth it is lighterbodied and balanced, which gives it a certain freshness.
provided it is kept in a cool, dry place, protected from the light, this wine
will retain its quality for around 2 years.
Perfect with meals based on white meat.
It should be drunk at a temperature of 16ºC. Once opened, the wine
should be consumed on the same day.
