Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
The grapes enter the winery right after harvesting and undergo cold maceration at 15 °C in order to extract all the fruit. The Garnacha is fermented at a regulated temperature of 25-28 °C in stainless steel tanks to preserve this varietal’s fruitiness, freshness and elegance. A small batch is fermented at a higher temperature to contribute good tannins, color and aromas to the final blend. Following fermentation it is racked in other vats for malolactic fermentation. The entire winemaking process for this wine complies with organic winemaking principles.
Vineyard (viticulture)
The 2016 harvest at Raimat could be described as exceptional: a very mild summer and autumn, which extended the ripening period into mid November and, in some cases, delayed the start of the harvest by 10 days in comparison with the average. This is unusual in these latitudes.
For the red grape varietals we were able to wait until full phenolic ripeness and even somewhat over-ripe grapes in some cases, which contributed to wines with more intense flavours and softer tannins. This vintage will yield distinct wines with personality and elegance.
