Manzanos Gran Reserva

D.O.Ca Rioja (Spain)

Wine making process

A good selection from exclusive vineyards noted for freshness and concentration after an early morning hand harvest. Fermentation (max 77ºF) in small inox tanks with pumping over five times a day and a 14 day maceration. Ageing in French and American oak barrels in search of a full integration of the wine and the oak. Fined in concrete tanks for various months.
