Vinification: Grapes are selected and picked by hand, both from our own vineyards and those leased and under our own control, situated in the best areas of production in the Miño valley. A second selection of the clusters is done in the winery using a vibrating inspection table, followed by destemming and cold maceration for two and a half hours to extract all the aromatic potential.
Controlled temperature fermentation and then rests on fine lees for four months in stainless steel. Bottled in April 2019 and then allowed to rest in bottle for two months.
