La Grulla Valley / Ejido Uruapan. Santo Domingo Vineyard. Agricultural valley south of Ensenada, characterized by having a more pronounced Mediterranean climate than Valle de Guadalupe, with a constant warm morning and higher rainfall in winter. Vines approximately 20-25 years old.
In recent years, however, the harvest area for these varieties has suffered from a shortage of water, which is reflected in the concentration of the flavors of its fruit and gives a characteristic saline note to the fruity profile of the wine.
Grenache: Porous sandy soil, with good drainage. Syrah: Same vineyard, but located on a hill, with porous soil but more granite and less exposure to the sun.
Carbonic maceration is a vinification process associated with French Beaujolais wines. The grapes are whole bunch fermented in a carbon dioxide atmosphere. In the absence of air, the yeasts go from aerobic to anaerobic respiration, starting their fermentation. Spontaneous fermentation in carbonic maceration for 11 days in a closed tank. It was pressed and finished alcoholic fermentation without maceration. It was mixed with 5% of wine from the same grapes that underwent alcoholic and non-enzymatic (carbonic) fermentation. Brief aging in neutral barrel, 2 months to integrate the mixture. Bottled and ready to drink.
