Martin Sarmiento Mencia 2011

72.00

Martín Sarmiento is made with a selection of the best

mencía grapes from the centenary grapevines cultivated in

El Bierzo’s mountain vineyards.

The harvest is manually done in 20 kg boxes. Once the

grape has arrived to the winery and, after been carefully

selected, a 12oC pre-fermentative maceration is done. After

that, begins the 25oC alcoholic fermentation before it goes

again through a maceration process to then give way to the

pressing.

Once the malolactic fermentation is finished, a 12 months

aging in french oak barrels is done to then, finish its

production with a new aging in bottle, this time, for more

than 24 months.
