LERMA
SELECCIÓN

Lerma Selección Reserva. Tempranillo 100%
Production: 4.500 Bottles (75 cl)

VINEYARDS

Tempranillo grapes, from vines over 80 years old, growing on a pebble land in south-facing slopes.

PRODUCTION AND AGEING

Grapes are slightly overripened, hand-harvested into 15-kg boxes. They are hand selected and de-stemmed in the cellar, and must be stored in small stainless steel tanks.

FERMENTATION

Thee grapes must be stabilised for five days in cold conditions, before fermentation begins at a temperature no higher than 27ºC. Then follows the second natural fermentation process, in french oak barrels, with its own lees, to give a lasting velvety touch. Wine is left with its lees for 14 months before non-mechanical decanting. It is then returned to barrels for natural stabilising.

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR: Intense bright cherry colour.

NOSE: The long maturing process gives the wine notes of ripe red fruit. The oak gives the wine expression, with toasted aromas and hints of coffee.

PALATE: A smooth and persistent palate, with no aggressive flavours, making it very full-bodied a ripe fruit, (blackcurrant), aftertaste, stimulating the senses.

TASTING DATE

March 2010.
