Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
The trellised vines were mechanically harvested by night and the goblet vines were harvested by hand during the day. The grapes were received in the hopper, destemmed and lightly crushed, the skins were then macerated in the press for 2 to 4 hours before pressing.This was followed by static clarification andalcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (14 ºC) with selected yeasts. The wine was then racked and left in its lees for 2 months. It did notunder go malolactic fermentation or aging in barrels. It then underwent final clarification, cold stabilisation and filtering to ensure optimum stability and presentation.
Vineyard (viticulture)
The controlled vine plot surface area covers 2,100 hectares supplied by around 300 grape suppliers. Most of these vineyards lie within the Rueda, Serrada and La Seca municipalities in Valladolid province, bordering with Segovia province.The vineyards are located 700 to 800 metres above sea level. The most characteristic soils are the“cascajos”: greyish brown, gravelly soils that are well ventilated and well drained. The traditional vine training system consists of goblet vines whereas all the vine stock planted in recent years is trellised.
