Alfar Selected Vintage

PRODUCTION:

Grape selection by estates and maturation level in hand picked harvest, desteeming and not crushing. Vines grown in traditional vase. Maceration for 3 days previous to the fermentation at 12ºC in order to facilitate the full extraction of aromas. Fermentation at a controlled temperature of 24-26ºC for 5 to 7 days. After the fermentation there is another maceration for 10 days in order to complete the extraction of the poliphenols. Malolactic fermentation is done after devatting in new oak French barrel for two months. Afterwards the wine is aging in new oak French barrels for 10 months, being then rounded in the bottle for at least 12 months. This wine is only produced in extraordinary good vintages.
