Chobeo de Peciña

White Fermentado en Barrica

 

The wine:
From our grapes Viura from “Finca Iscorta” vineyard, planted about 50 years ago, we have elaborated this elegant wine. 

The grapes are hand-harvested in boxes of 15 kilos to avoid any type of break, oxidation or fermentation before the entry in the winery. Later, they are selected on a vibrating sorting table, where those that do not overcome the maximum quality are discarded, obtaining the grains come enterely to the press.

Then the juice and skins are pressed and we obtain a complex must that will be entered in new American oak casks, where it will do the alcoholic fermentation for one month, receiving battonages every day to obtain a well structured wine.

After the fermentation and after one racking, it will stay 2 months more in cask to obtain the balance between wine and wood.
