VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION
The vines, with an average age of 25 years, are grown in top class Rioja Alta vineyards with soils composed of clay and limestone. Harvest took place towards the end of October. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks with the temperature controlled at 26o C. When fermentation was done, the wine was racked into barrels for 8 months. Selection of barrels is of particular importance in Rioja where oak is such a critical element in winemaking. 50% of the wine went into American oak barrels and 50% into French oak barrels. This results in the perfect balance of fruit and oak.
