More info

The Aldeanueva de Ebro (meaning the "new hamlet of the Ebro") is located on the windy plateau that runs from the slopes of Mount Yerga, to the River Ebro. The vineyard consists of different types of soils, from pebble to clay, at varying altitudes. The soils, together with the intensive sun exposure and low rainfall, define the vineyards of Aldeanueva. This area offers the potential to produce good quality, healthy grapes, characterised by their intense colour and medium to high alcohol levels.

Careful selection of the fruit as it enabled winemaker Javier to perform long periods of maceration, in order to ensure good extraction of tannins, aroma and flavour components. Each grape variety was fermented separately in vats at controlled temperatures of between 28 to 30°C. The wine was racked into large American oak vats before being left to age for 18 months in oak casks. After bottling, the Reserva was bottle aged in the cellar to develop its bouquet and harmonious character.
