CRIANZA RED

ORIGIN

Alt Penedès. Protected Designation of Origin Penedès. From our own vineyards in our family estate, Casa Ravella (Ordal).


2008 HARVEST

Grapevines showed an early start of the vegetative cycle. A rainy spring, followed by a dry and hot summer, gave way to a very balanced harvest.  Collected grapes had high sugar content and a solid structure, adding complexity to the wines.


PRODUCTION AND AGEING

Entirely own harvest. Hand picked with grape selection in the vineyard itself.

Complete de-stalking.

Macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks with temperature control.

Pumped up for polyphenol and colour extraction.

Twelve months ageing in Hungarian, American and French oak barrels.


VARIETIES

90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot.
