Grapes harvested by hand during the first week of October 2018, crushed but not destemmed. Fermented for 12-15 days in stainless steel tanks with daily pumpovers. The wine was racked and malolactic fermentation started in the tanks and lasted approximately 20-30 days; we made use of the cold of the Castillian winter to stabilize the wine outdoors; then the wine was racked to French oak barrels. No more rackings until bottling; nevertheless it is NORMAL for some precipitates to appear in the bottle during its lifetime, give the natural nature of the processing.
Aging: 12 months in 500 liter French oak barrles.
The grapes are from a wide range of vineyards in Ribera del Duero, at altitudes of between 750 and 1,000 m above sealevel. The soils vary, and include red clays, alluvial sand and limestone.
