Blanco 2019 2ºYear

VINEYARDS Only native varieties: 75% Viura and 25% Tempranillo blanco. All the grapes come from the same plot, located in a high altitude area of Haro. Stony alluvial soil with a mantle of pebbles at the surface and a deep limestone layer (basic) on a slight slope. Low yield per vine and mínimum tillage to avoid deconstructing the soil. Excellent vegetative balance and bunches receive adequate exposure to sunlight.
HARVEST: The grapes were handpicked in 200 kg crates and hand sorted at the winery.
WINEMAKING: Light pressing, without needing to work in an inert atmosphere, some work in the open, and about 50% of stems in the pressing. The objective being a more Burgundian style that highlights the qualities of the land, over the varietal expression. Minimum contribution of SO2, spontaneous fermentation. All alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel at a constant temperature of 16ºC. Then, a part of the volume spends five months in French oak (not roasted, steam bending) with its lees, and the remaining volume is also aged with its lees in a concrete tank.
SOIL: Suelo pedregoso, aluvial, compuesto por un manto de canto rodado en superficie con horizonte calizo en profundidad (básico). Ligera pendiente.

The winter was extremely dry and mild, with less vegetation than usual. Some plots located in the Sierra de la Sonsierra were also affected by frost at the end of May. Both factors, along with a very hot and dry spring, led to lower production. The month of June was marked by unusually warm temperatures that caused signs of water stress in the vines, but was completely resolved by precipitation during July and August. The rainfall, with sufficient vegetation, allowed the grapes to ripen with excellent freshness, which will be the hallmark of this vintage.

ANALYTICAL PARAMETERS: Alcohol: 13.5% vol. — Ph: 3.45 — Residual Sugar: 1.3 g/l.
