Wine made from grapes from the Rioja Alavesa area harvested by hand and processed in Viña Real. The destemmed grapes were placed in stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation takes place for 10-12 days with a temperature control between 26-28 º C. Once the malolactic fermentation has been done the wine goes mainly to age in American oak barrels where it remains 13 - 14 months. During this time, the wine acquires the aromatic balance which characterizes the wine as well as its finesse and great expression.
