D.O. Ribera del Duero
Viña Gormaz Joven
The Tempranillo essence expressed though a unique terroir. In a precise game of balances and through its properties, the soil in the vineyards act as a regulator of the elements of the climate. In this young wine, the physical and geological characteristics of the plot – by radiation (colour, exposure, albedo) and water contributions (granulometry, retention capacity) – find in the Tempranillo its most complete expression. The colour / temperature binomial offers all its power in this young wine. The privileged area where the wine comes from has a unique ecosystem, origin and cradle of exceptional red wines.
Grape selection regarding the plots’ location and maturation degree. 85 % of the “coupage” is macerated for 10-12 days and is fermented at controlled temperatures bellow 26ºC. The remaining 15 % consists of wine that has undergone “controlled fermentation”, meaning that the must enters in contact with the grape skins for 2 or 3 days to be left to ferment at a controlled temperature of 20ºC before being blended with the main body of the batch in order to increase the aromatic strength of the wine.
