BODEGAS LAS ORCAS
100 % Tempranillo.
24 months in French oak barrel and minimum 16 months in bottle.
Firstly, a pre-fermentative maceration takes place during 5 days. Then, the fermentation is done in tapered stainless-steel vats of 20.000 litres with three daily overpumpings. After finishing the primary fermentation, the maceration continues together with the skins for the next 14 days. Once the malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is transferred into French oak barrels for the next 24 months. Afterwards, the wine is bottled, where it will spend a minimum of 16 months before entering the market.
