Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
The grapes is harvested manually in 15 kilo boxes. When it reaches the cellar, it is stored in a cold room overnight at 6 ºC and the following morning it is thoroughly inspected at the selection table. The clusters are destemmed and the whole grapes taken on a conveyor belt to small, 5.200 litres, stainless steel tapered tank, where they are vinified separately by provenance.
We start with a cold soak for several days before alcoholic fermentation, which is carried out with native yeasts at 28-30 ºC, to express the characteristics of the different terroirs, respecting the uniqueness of each vintage. Frequent manual punch downs are carried out during fermentation. The wine is devatted 3 weeks after the grapes are vatted and only the free-run wine is employed, without adding the press wine.
Malolactic fermentation took place in new French oak barrels.
Subsequently, the wine remained for 20 months in French fine-grain oak barrels, half of which were new and the other half had one wine. The barrels come from ten different coopers.
After a gentle fining with egg whites, the was bottled in May 2015. The wine concluded its refining process for 24 months in our bottle racks before being marketed.
This harvest consists of 86,037 Bordeaux-type bottles.
Vineyard (viticulture)
This wine is made exclusively with Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grapes.
The grapes come from an exhaustive selection of small bush-pruned vines, between 50 and 90 years old, in different plots in the province of Burgos: Peñaranda de Duero, Olmedillo de Roa, Roa and Hontoria de Valdearados.
The average altitude of these vineyards ranges between 850 and 1.000 meters.
These old vines are planted in soils with low fertility; either sandy, sandy-gravelly or clay-limestone. Traditionally, vineyards were planted in poor soils that were of no use for other crops.
Given the level of grape ripeness we require to produce this exceptional wine, we can only offer 7 or 8 vintages in each decade.
