Airen and Tempranillo are the most characteristic grapes from this area, while other non-native grape varieties sucha as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Viura, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay have excellent results due to the climate and terrain in this region.

Technical Information

Awards

Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness level to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The wine undergoes a short period of cold maceration of around 6 hours. This is followed by the must fermentation at 18 ºC in stainless steel tanks for an average period of 10 days. Finally, the wine completes a short ageing period on lees for around two months.
