Single-estate Denomination of Origin

CABERNET FAMILIAR DE CHOZAS CARRASCAL

A single-grape variety wine made from the less productive vines from Chozas Carrascal.

Wine processing

Manually harvested. Grapes are selected one by one. This wine is vinified in concrete tanks with a capacity of 100hl. Maceration takes between 2 and 3 weeks depending on the vintage. Throughout this period two automated pigeages are performed to punch down the cap of the grape skins. Deléstage is done when one and two thirds of the fermentation process have been reached. The free-run juice goes through malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels used for the first time for producing red wines. These barrels have been used before for the fermentation and ageing on the lees of white wine. During the first months of the ageing period, a batônnage is performed weekly. This wine is then left to age in 220-litre French oak barrels for five to seven months depending on the vintage.

Grape variety

One single grape variety 100% Cabernet Franc.
Ageing process: 9 months in new French oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Colour: Violet red with high layer intensity. Clean and brilliant colour.
Nose: Elegant and direct aroma. Black fruit explosion on a mineral base.
Palate: Expressive, bodied and with a unique character resulting from the terroir and the grape variety. Mouth filling, mineral and balsamic.

Recommendation

Serving temperature: 14-16º C.
This single-variety wine matches perfectly with structured and fully flavoured dishes rich in aromas, very typical in traditional Spanish cooking. Given its powerful but round and mature tannins, it goes very nicely with red meats high in proteins.

Wine tasting glass: Spiegelau Authentics 01.
