Vd’O 5 – Grenache in Sand, Granite and Quartz
Grape Varieties: 100% Grenache
2010 is a vintage that provides snow to our vineyards and strong wind Tramuntana during a long growing season that ends rainy and fresh.
A set of factors that has contributed to our rigorous work in the vineyard to obtain a low yield from Grenache vines from Olivardots state planted in 2002 on a sandy-granitic soil
Vd’O 5.10 has been made with a careful selection of these Grenache grapes that offer a great expression of this variety at the end of their ripening.
A new wine that becomes part of our terroir collection wines“Varietals de terrer”.
Vinification and ageing
Cold soak (4ºC) and alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature over 26-28ºC.
We combine the processing techniques punching down (pigeage) and pump over to extract the great personality of their grapes.
Long maceration and pressing respectfully in a vertical press at very low pressure.
Aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, stirring the lees (bâtonnage) and malolactic fermentation in them that will qualify harmonically its aromatic expression.
Bottled without fining or filtering.
Deeply pitched red berry, cherry, anise and woodsmoke scents show very good clarity, picking up peppery spice and floral qualities with air.
Elegant, penetrating and precise, with juicy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors.
Shows excellent depth and clarity, finishing sweet, smoky and very long, with soft tannins coming on late.
