MARTIN BERDUGO GRAN RESERVA

Martín Berdugo - Single Vineyard Estate Stand: 1930e

This was our first harvest following the rebuilding of our winery after
a lightning bolt strike in 2013 caused a devastating fire, and the qualitative
leap made by the adoption of our gravity-fed winemaking system.
This wine honors the history of the winery, blending the most up
to date vineyard management and monitoring techniques with the
traditions and essence of our region and the environment. Tempranillo
is the most popular grape in Spain and Gran Reserva is the ultimate
in aged wines from Ribera del Duero. The grapes came from
specially selected old, unirrigated gravel plots of Tinto Fino plants in
our own vineyard where yields are low and fruit quality is traditionally
exceptional.
T E C H N I C A L D E TA I L
The grapes were harvested by hand at the optimum moment, in the
oldest plots, and passed through a manual selection table to guarantee
maximum quality. The alcoholic fermentation lasted 7 to 9 days
at a temperature between 26 and 28ºC after a cold pre-fermentation
maceration of 3 to 5 days. After a 24-day post-fermentation maceration,
the free-run wine was bled and the pressing was separated. A subsequent
resting on fine lees ensured greater complexity. The malolactic
fermentation took place for 3 to 6 weeks.
OAK AGING
This wine was aged for 30 months in oak barrels before being rounded
off in bottles..
