We pick the best grapes from low yielding vines from our own vineyards of Sauvignon Blanc, which have just 4.000 plants per hectare.
The grapes are collected in special boxes, each one weighing 15kg. We only harvest in the morning in order to keep the grapes at an optimum temperature until they reach the winery. Once at the winery, the full boxes are placed in cold storage rooms for 3 days at a temperature of -10°C.
We select the grapes box by box followed by destalking and crushing. The grape pulp is put into a temperature controlled stainless steel tan where the grapes go through a cold peculiar maceration (8°C) for more than 24 hours.
We then put the grapes into a pneumatic press to be gently pressed at no more than 0.5 bars. The must that is extracted from the press is decanted during 24 hours and we then only take the clean must to be fermented in new American oak barrels, each one with a capacity of 400 litres, at a temperature of 14°C, Once the fermentation is completed, the wine in left in its lees until it is bottled.
In Bodegas Hispano+Suizas we use only the best grapes, selected and hand-picked in our vineyards and fermented all varieties in barrels of 400 litres temperature-controlled, looking for the ultimate expression of aromas and flavors.
