Terroir/Vinification

Vinification: 
Following harvest, the grapes are brought to the winery where they are de-stemmed and pressed. The must obtained then undergoes a cold premacerated at 10ºC for at least five hours, and then fermented with native yeasts for 10 days at 15ºC in stainless-steel deposits. 
 
Climate
The climate is continental (long, hot summers and cold winters) and ranges from extremes of -15°C in winter to 45°C in summer. Drought is also common due to the micro-climate of La Mancha, which prevents moisture-bearing winds from crossing it; mean annual rainfall is about 300 to 400 mm. On the other hand, the vines are exposed to about 3,000 hours of sunlight per year.


Geology
The soil structure is very homogenous throughout the region and tends to be flat. It is formed of reddish-brown sandy clay, which is poor in organic material and rich in lime and chalk. Strata of lime are common and are often broken to allow the roots of the vines to pass through.


Harvest
The world of wines is characterised by its diversi-ty – among regions, vineyards, varieties and even vintages.
This is largely because meteorological conditions can have a very significant effect. 2017 was a year of extremes, with heat and drought. The yield in La Mancha was 25% smaller than in 2016 and 35% less than a normal harvest.
And never before had a harvest taken place so early, being over by the end of September. But the result was small, exceptionally healthy grapes which resulted in very concentrated and aromatic wines. Also, the heat and drought pushed up the alcohol content, reduced the acidity of the wines and gave them added nuances of maturity
