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 .
