All the Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo grapes for this wine come from a selection of the different parcels of the Finca El Estanque vineyard, a 60-hectare vineyard owned by the winery in the best areas of Haro. The vines are 35 years old on average. Grapes were hand harvested in October 20th (Tempranillo), 27th (Mazuelo) and 29th (Graciano).
Fermented in concrete vats. After destemming and gentle pressing, the juice macerates on the skins before fermenting for approximately 15 days at a maximum temperature of 90 ºF. Each variety is vinified and aged separately before blending and bottling.
