DO Ribera del Duero - Spain
Vineyard: Located at 960 mts. altitude
Soil Type: Chalky and stony
Rainy winter with low temperatures, followed by more spring rains, promoted early sprouting and vegetative development with good water reserves. Warm summer with peaks of 38-40ºC and cool nights favored a slow polyphenolic maturation. Harvest in late september early october with mild temperatures for optimal harvesting and a perfect sanitary condition of the grapes.
We make a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard and transport to the winery in small boxes of 12 kilos to maintain maximum respect for the quality of the fruit. Once in the winery, a final selection on the sorting table will ensure the optimal conditions of health and maturity with the subsequent cold pre-fermentation maceration at 5ºC for 5 days. All this to achieve a greater polyphenolic extraction by means of a gentle daily pumping over.
The vineyard's own yeasts carry out alcoholic fermentation spontaneously, and with controlled temperatures between 20-26ºC. Finca de Altura performs malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 20-22ºC and is aged during 8 months in French oak barrels under controlled conditions of humidity and temperature (75% and 12ºC respectively).
Ideal for some game meats (hare or rabbit) even roasted red ones, such as kid goat, suckling lamb or pig; semi-cured cheeses and some blue fish. It admits mushrooms and dishes of salted cod.
