Las Cenizas 2018

LAS CENIZAS 2018

Harvest: Hand-picked, the 5th of September 2018, in 180 kg. crates.

Varietals: (86%) Tempranillo y (14%) Mazuelo.

For this vintage, 14% of Mazuelo from “Los Hundidos” estate was included in the assemblage as, due to the low production per vine, it reached an impeccable maturation.

Wine-making: A refrigerated truck transports the crates to the winery at Finca La Emperatriz. Partially uncrushed destemmed grapes ferment in concrete tanks with controlled temperature and indigenous yeasts. Very gentle pump-overs were carried out during fermentation.

Ageing: Once the malolactic fermentation in barrels was finished, the wine aged in French (40%) and American (60%) oak barriques for 16 months.
