General information

Located in our Finca Ygay, the Ygay vineyards occupy an area of 300 hectares surrounding the winery, in Rioja Alta, with a difference in altitude from 320 meters to 485 meters. The clusters are destemmed and gently squeezed. The varieties ferment separately in stainless steel tanks, with temperature control. The incubation lasts 8 days during which pumping and punching are carried out, to favor the contact of the must with the skins and cause a slow and natural extraction of aromas and polyphenols.

After fermentation, the solid parts of the grape are pressed in vertical presses, through a smooth and slow process that favors the extraction of color and ripe tannins that reside in the skin. Raised for 19 months in 225-liter capacity American oak barrels .

CATA's notes

Imposing layer of violet color and intense tears. Its complex aromas are enjoyed on the nose. On the palate it is tannic and very tasty, with hints of good wood. Elegant and serious.
