Description

Rupestre de Alpera Crianza Garnacha Tintorera 2015

Rupestre de Alpera Crianza Garnacha Tintorera has a deep magenta red colour. Stunning bouquet of red cherries and mixed berries with light tobacco and chocolate accents. The full-bodied and dry palate has a nice balance, juicy acidity and round tannins. Ripe red cherries, strawberries and raspberries fill the mouth over an earthy background and notes of smoke, black pepper and tobacco. Closes with a long smoky finish.

100% Garnacha Tintorera. The fruit of this unique variety comes from Bodegas Santa Cruz de Alpera’s vineyards. The vineyards sit at an altitude between 850–1050 metres, and have limestone soils and poor organic matter. The climate is rigorous, dry and continental, with very cold winters and very hot summers, cold nights and hot days. These conditions lengthen the maturation process and make the fruit produce concentrated tannins and colour in the last stages of maturation.

Harvest by hand with strict quality control before the fruit enters the winery. Vinification in traditional methods with destemming of the grape in vertical rotating tanks. Fermentation temperature around 32ºC with grape skin and must contact for 16 days. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak casks of 500 liters. The wine ages in the oak for a minimum of 14 months with a light clarification and stabilisation before bottling. Permanence in bottle for more than 22 months.
