Additional information

Region

Monterray lies within Galicia, in the south east corner next to the Portugese border. This is the only part of Galicia that links into the Duero valley. The area enjoys unique micro climates that suit the growing of wine grapes. The vines are between 15 and 20 years old, planted on sandy slate soils on the slopes of the Verin valley at an altitude of 700m.

Production

The grapes are fermented in stainless steel, half of them in open top fermentors where they undergo delestage and pigeage. (Delestage is the process of drawing off the juice and returning it on top of the cap of skins. Pigeage is the punching down of the cap of skins) Both of these processes increase the extraction of colour and tannins but also of flavours and the aromatic compounds contained in the skins. Following from this the must spends three to six months in second and third fill French oak barrels.
