Grape Variety:

Tempranillo

Vinification Details:

The grapes are harvested in the last week in September by hand and machine, they are then crushed and de-stemmed. Fermentation takes pace in stainless steel and concrete tanks, with temperature control at around 25 °c. Pump overs are carried out twice a day for a period of 7 days, to extract the colour, flavour and tannins. Some of wine is then left to macerate on skins for a further 7-10 days the other part is given oak treatment, these are then blended together to make the final wine.
