Balgorri Finca la Conoca 2021

This wine is a tribute to a vineyard in a valley where mostiy Tempranillo grapes are grown. Only 5,000 bottles per vintage are produced and the current one is the first on the market. The age of the vineyard is irrelevant if we think about the characteristics of this calcareous soil and its altitude of more than 600 meters. It is one of the last vineyards to be harvested precisely because time does not run so fast in the valley and its harvest requires care and dedication. After a manual harvest the bunches are collected in boxes and sorted out. Afterwards, an alcoholic fermentation is performed with native yeasts in 5,000-liter French oak vats, whereas the malolactic fermentation happens in barrels from centenary oaks at 20 degrees.
