2005 Darien, Crianza, Rioja
Varieties: Tempranillo / Garnacha / Mazuelo / Graciano (depending on the harvest)
Vinification: The grapes are picked by hand and collected in small plastic crates of twenty kg. in order to avoid the bunch to be damaged. Vinification begins with the separation of the berries from the stalk, then maceration follows before the alcoholic fermentation begins. The different varieties of grape from which the wine is made are fermented separately. After the alcoholic fermentation is done, another long maceration process begins in order to extract all the aromas and flavour potential. Cask ageing is made in American- and French- oak casks for approximately twelve months to achieve the right balance of fruit and wood. In order to preserve he rich aromatic complexity of the wine, it is stabilised naturally.
Temperature of service 18º C / 64º F
