Dehesa de Luna Garnacha Tintorera 2017
Deep cherry colour with a purplish rim. It fl oods the nose with a wide palette from violet aromas to ripe red fruit, with memories of pastry and dairy. Tasty and broad in the mouth, with polished tannins, long with a touch of salt.

2017 was a record year due to the intensity of the drought and high temperatures. Harvesting began on 31 August, the first time since records began that the area was harvested at such an early date. The grapes ripened more quickly than other years and, therefore, monitoring this process and deciding on the harvest date were essential for ensuring the quality of the wine. We harvested by hand using 12 kg boxes. In the cellar the grapes were kept at 4ºC for 24 hours before being processed. The selection table played a key role in eliminating raisined grapes that could have distorted the quality of the wine. The fermentation and maceration process lasted 10 days, with maximum fermentation temperatures of 26 ºC, one third of the harvest fermented in oak vats and the rest in stainless steel tanks. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrels and, once completed, was followed by an ageing process of 8 months.
