Description

Own Vineyard: Located in our Ygay Estate, the Ygay vineyards occupy an area of ​​300 hectares surrounding the winery, in Rioja Alta, with an altitude difference from 320 meters to 485 meters.

Grape varieties: 84% Tempranillo, 9% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo, 2% Garnacha.

Alcoholic degree: 14% Vol.

Vinification: The bunches are de-stemmed and gently squeezed. The varieties ferment separately in stainless steel tanks, with temperature control. The vatting lasts 8 days during which pumping over and punching is carried out, to favor the contact of the must with the skins and cause a slow and natural extraction of aromas and polyphenols. After fermentation, the solid parts of the grape are pressed in vertical presses, through a smooth and slow process that favors the extraction of color and ripe tannins that reside in the skin.

Aging Process: Aged for 19 months in 225 liter capacity American oak barrels.

Pairing: Steam-grilled hake loin, prawns with coral muslin and truffle aroma; baked desalted cod with onion and green peppers; red bean stew with pig’s trotters and pitcher kale; grilled beef tenderloin, fried green asparagus and carrot puree; creamy rice carnaroli with truffles and half-cooked foie; selection of creamy and blue cheeses, compote of red wine and sour cherries.

Consumption recommendation: Serve at a temperature between 16-18ºC to favor the oxygenation of the wine and to be able to enjoy its aromas to the maximum.
