Gran Cardiel

Gran Cardiel is a tribute to a man passionate about the Castilian landscape, a personal friend of Félix Lorenzo Cachazo. He frequented our town to contemplate the majestic bird “Avutarda”, one of the biggest birds able to fly, who is in danger of extinction, and that lives and breeds in our area.

WINEMAKING PROCESS

Reception of the grapes in our winery; destemming and crushing of the grapes with a light pressing in order to extract the grape must. We carry out a static settling process with help from cold temperature. Further on, the fermentation process lasts for about 3 to 4 weeks with cold temperatures (never above 15ºC). Afterwards, a racking operation, or transfer of the wine, is carried out to eliminate the thick lees, leaving only the fine lees in the wine, which we work for several months in order to obtain wines of complexity and structure with a final touch of elegance. Finally, the clarification, stabilisation and a light filtration is carried out before the wine is bottled.
