Monasterio De Las Vinas Gran Reserve 2012

Deep garnet, tight rim, brick nuances. Clean and bright. Intense aroma, ripe black fruits(dry prunes and dates) and mineral, spicy and roasted notes, toasted-warm, balanced palate. Pleasant aftertaste. Monasterio, de las Viñas Gran Reserva, is a wine from the D.O. Carignan made by Bodega Monasterio de las Viñas. It's a blend of Grenache (60%), Tempranillo (30%) and Carignan (10%) from vineyards planted in a low vine plantation system. The vines are between 40 and 50 years old.

The harvest is carried out by hand in the morning to ensure the grape bunches stay fresh. They are subject to a cold maceration for 96 hours at a temperature of 6ºC—the wine ferments for eight days at a temperature controlled at 28ºC in stainless steel deposits. After the fermentation, the wine macerated for 15 to 20 days to extract its full potential. The varieties are aged separately. The Tempranillo and the Carignan age in French oak barrels and the Grenache in American oak barrels for 24 months. Using the best barrels the final blend is made, and the wine is bottled. The wine remains in the bottle for at least 36 months before entering the market.
