Grapes are sourced from our Ygay Estate: 300 hectares of vineyards surrounding the winery in the southernmost point of Rioja Alta with mainly calcareous-clay soils. Altitude ranges from 320 to 485 meters.

September 30th to October 18th, 2014.

Grape varieties are vinified separately. Previously de-stemmed, the grapes ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation takes around 8 and 12 days during which, pumping over and punching down operations are regularly carried out to ensure the contact between juice and skins. Afterwards, the solid parts of the grapes are squashed in a vertical press, by a gentle process that extracts color and ripe tannins from the grape skins.

The wine is aged for 25 months in 225-litre American oak barrels.

Grape varieties: 84% tempranillo, 9% graciano, 5% mazuelo, 2% garnacha.

Tasting note

Over a base of balsamic aromas, there are hints of spices, ripe black berries, cassis, and figs.  The delicate aromatic range is completed with mineral and light earth notes.

The wine is refined and it has a lively palate, with silky texture that is wrapped by polished tannins and a long, persistent finish.

“A well-structure wine that has long to live. Faithful expression of the vintage and our Ygay Estate” María Vargas - Technical Manager
