Vd’O 5 – Grenache in Sand, Granite and Quartz
Grape Varieties: 100% Grenache
Wine made with selected grapes from Olivardots state planted in 2002 on a sandy-granitic soil
Vd’O 5.18 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 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.
Red and black fruits accompanied balsamic notes such as eucalyptus, forest herbs and sweet flower.
In the mouth we find a fresh Grenache, sweet and with a long and persistent finish but with good acidity.
