Fulget 2016

Origin of the grape

A controlled vineyard (15 has.) in the sub-zone of the Salnes Valley, within the “Rías Baixas” Denomination of Origin. Vines are 25 years-old.

Vintage

Pruning took place during the months of December and January. After the flowering in June, superfluous shoots were trimmed. Throughout the summer, the crops were thinned and excessive individual branches were cut. To favour maximum exposure to the sun canopies were trimmed in August. During the ripening period a detailed analysis of plots kept check on the levels of acidity and sugar in the grapes. The harvest took place between September 16th - 23th, finding the optimum level of maduration for each plot. All this works are made by hand.

Elaboration

Grapes were collected in 20 kg boxes; and stored in a refrigerated lorry whilst inside the vineyard and immediately transported to the Wine Cellar where cold pelicular maceration was applied on an average of 5 hours. 
Alcoholic fermentation took place over 21 days at a controlled temperature (16ºC-18ºC).
