Cuatro Tierras

Categories: Crianza

A special selection of our best grapes from four distinct grape – growing areas where our vineyards are located. The different soils and microclimates provide a diversity of nuances to the grapes from these vineyards and the wines made with them.

Varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Garnacha.

COLOUR: An attractive ruby-red wine.
AROMAS: Intense aromas of ripe fruit, red fruit and stewed fruit blending perfectly with the typical spicy and toasty notes from ageing.
MOUTH: Very tasty and expressive in the mouth. A sweet entry gives way to a long, fruity wine with good acidity, which balances it, providing a pleasing freshness. Intense aftertaste.
FOOD MATCHING: Charbroiled meats, red meat casseroles, aged cheeses and charcuterie. It pairs particulary well with cocoa rich chocolate.
OPTIMAL SERVING TEMPERATURE: 16 -18 ºC.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

The grapes are fermented and macerated separately in stainless steel vats.

The fermentation is made at a controlled temperature of between 28 to 30 ºC and with a maceration of around 15 days, depending on the grape variety and condition. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation has been completed, the wine is matured in 225 litre oak barrels for 9 months.

The different wines are then blended to obtain a perfect coupage of the three varieties. The subsequent bottle ageing creates a wine with the desired elegance and fullness for our Crianza wines.
