Our vineyards are planted in clay and calcareous soils in a continental climate. We harvested the Tempranillo in the third week of September and Cabernet Sauvignon the following week. Fermentation lasted 10 days at a temperature of 68-77ªF and 15 days of post-fermentative maceration. The Gran Reserve wine spent at least 24 months in American and French oak barrels prior to bottling and almost the same time in bottle prior to being released.
