Tasting Notes

Mayor de Castilla Gran Reserva is a red wine of Ribera Del Duero with sweet cherry red color with high intensity, very good coat and a beautiful purple rim. On the nose, we can appreciate fruity aromas so suggestive, with memories of berries fruits, black and red, vanilla and sweet notes, from its good wood. Mature on mouth, full of nuances with an intense aftertaste. Its retronasal shows the mature tannins richness that leaves a long and elegant aftertaste.

Vinification

The elaboration of this wine began in the month of January with the pruning of the older vineyards, moments in which adjusted the number of buds optimal balanced of the plant. After 10 months of care in the fields, and when the maturity degree arrived, it is done the harvest at night to bring the grape in the winery at low temperature and without unwanted macerations. The maceration is extended during 25 days, getting with that the maximum potential in the grapes.
Malolactic fermentation was carried out in the presence of lees. Once the fermentation has finished, the wine was racking and finally made the barreling process. The barreling time was carried out in new French oak barrels during 24 months; in this time there are two rackings to help the wine to oxygenate itself. After this period the wine rest in the bottle to complete its Crianza.
