Grapes were hand picked into 20kg cases in the early hours of the 10th of October from the single estate of ‘Finca del Val’ situated at 950 metres from a parcel of 0,5 hectares of Syrah situated on ‘cantos’ or pudding stones. Grapes were stored at 0 degrees for 48 hours in a cool room before gentle crushing and cold soak for a further 10 days. The must was then warmed and fermentation commenced with punch downs and pigeage. Half way through fermentation of the Syrah, fresh Viognier juice and Viognier lees were added to aid colour stability and to add glycerol, perfume and complexity to the wine. A further maceration of 3 weeks followed after alcoholic fermentation and the wine was then pressed to new and one year old 225 French oak barrels from Sylvian and Berthomieu coopers. Total production of 13 barrels / 4200 bottles. Calatayud offers one of the most unique areas in Spain for Rhone varietals and when Syrah and Viognier are grown at altitude at viticultural extremes the results are quite singular and perfumed.
