Capa Collection is a wonderful way to experience new wines. The grapes used for this wine come from a single vineyard located in the heart of El Provencio. This vineyard was chosen for this wine due to the high quality of grape clusters found. The climate is continental meaning that the vineyards are exposed to freezing cold winters sometime resulting in a thin blanket (una capa) of snow. During the summers the vineyards are exposed to very warm and dry conditions with very little precipitation ensuring concentrated ripe fruit.

Winemaking

The grapes were carefully selected and manually harvested from mid to the end of September. Gentle destemming and crushing. Cold soaked at 5ºC during 72 hours, including 15% saignée to concentrate the musts. Temperature controlled fermentation and maceration beginning at 18-20ºC during the first 2/3 and finishing at 25-26ºC towards the end of the fermentation in stainless steel tanks during 15-18 days. 20% of the wine has been aged in French oak barrels for 4 months.

Tasting notes

Intense deep red color with purple rim. The fresh and intense aromas reminiscent of strawberries, black cherries and blueberries balance nicely with aromas of dark chocolate and toasted oak. On the palate the wine is full bodied with layers that unravel and excite.
