Red Wine from Arribes del Duero Sin Blanca 2016

The 2015 harvest was very warm and dry. This was an important challenge for the wine’s profile that we look for, fresh and drinkable wines! The harvest key was to pick in the right moment. We had to pick soon, and during the elaboration be careful not force getting balance with the extraction at the same time.

We processed 8,500 kg grapes (2,100 kg/ha), and we did two different elaborations:
