Growing Conditions

SOILS: Both terroirs share similar characteristics: Alluvial soils, near riverbeds and Colluvial soils, caused by mountain rock falls.

CLIMATE: In the growing time, the temperatures are lower, allowing the wines to achieve less degrees of alcohol, lower pH and higher acidity.

Winemaking

We use pure native yeasts. The Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented in stainless steel tanks, while the Syrah, the Carignan and the Cabernet Franc are fermented in open tanks to facilitate “Pigeage” (grinded with feet). This process is an essential part of our wine mixture. We limit to the minimum the pump-over process and we taste daily our wines until the desired results.

Aging

The wines are aged for 15 months in 3rd and 4th use oak barrels. Additionally we use an untoasted french oak foudre of 3000 liters. Afterward, the wine is storage for 6 months to then be released to the market.

Harvest

The grapes are tasted and selected carefully. An early harvest allows the wines to achieve freshness and acidity. The process is made by hand, using 12 kilos boxes.

Palate

Elegant wine with red fruits, graphite and spices notes. In the palate it shows freshness, intensity and deepness. Thanks its acidity, it becomes a versatile wine that can be combined with a wide variety of flavors and foods.
