Red Reserva wine, 100 % Monastrell European Root, 14,5 % ABV
Gémina Premium Reserva is elaborated from Monastrell selected grapes, only coming from European Root Vineyards older than 40 years.
These vineyards are pre-phylloxeral , older than forty years, with a very low production. (less than 1 kg per vine) Grapes are harvested in plastic boxes of 14 kg each, in order to avoid damages to the fruit. They are hand selected and carefully handled in our cellar. Once in the winery, they stayed in stainless steel deposits of 10,000 liters, during three weeks under controlled temperature
thorough all the maceration phase in order to extract tannings and color. After the transfers and once the malolactic fermentation is done, the wine is ageing for 14 months in our conditioned Gémina cellar.
Ageing in new Bordeaux barrels, 20% French Allier oak and 80% American Fine oak.
