Vinification Details

The Marques de Griñon winemaking philosophy is based on preserving the organoleptic values of each variety, applying the principle of minimum handling and performing the essential operations. The harvest is done manually in boxes of 15-17 Kg, which are unloaded at a selection table. After this, the grapes are destemmed and taken to the fermentation tanks, where a 1-2 day pre-fermentation is carried out at a low temperature, after this step the alcoholic fermentation takes place, where the sugar is transformed into alcohol at a controlled temperature. The wine remains in contact with the skins for a few weeks and after this the stripping and pressing of the skins takes place, which is done in a light way. Then the wine makes a second fermentation, malolactic fermentation, where malic acid is transformed into lactic acid, a softer acid than the first. After this the wine enters new or almost 100% French oak barrels and 225 liters capacity. The barrels have a maximum age of 4 years. The w
