El Pacto de la Sonsierra 2019
Old vineyards and minimal intervention to reflect the character of the Sonsierra.
27 plots of old organic vines, planted in the 1950s and the 1960s. Mostly calcareous clay soils settled on sandstone rock% $%, located in high and very airy areas of the towns of mainly Baños de Ebro but also in Villabuena de Álava, Navaridas and San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
Manual night-time harvest from September 27 to October 4.
Static maceration for 10 days, with minimal intervention to avoid over extraction. Spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts in 20,000 kg tanks at temperatures not exceeding 26° C. Minimal amounts of sulfites are added.
Mainly Tempranillo with the occasional wines of the white varieties and Graciano and Mazuelo.
Great depth of color, with violet and red tones.
Intense and surprising for its frank aroma of berries, liquorice, undergrowth, hints of spice and chocolate.
Bold with great balance, full-bodied but fine and fresh at the same time, fruit and barrel notes returning in the aftertaste.
