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 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. We harvested at optimum stage of ripeness during the second half of September 2015. The wine was vinified with a cold maceration at 5ºC during 48 hours, 15% saignée to concentrate the musts. Temperature controlled fermentation at 24-28ºC in stainless steel tanks. Maceration time 12-18 days. The wines was then aged 6 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels to give it a nice toasty balance to the bold fresh fruits.

Tasting notes

Clear deep ruby-purple color. Clean and distinguished aromas of black cherries and blueberry jam. These berry jam flavors attack the palate with juiciness getting smoothed out with light vanilla and delicate milk chocolate and roasted java bean. On the palate the wine is dry, full-bodied with firm but ripe velvety tannins and a long finish.
