Altovinum Evodia 2020

Mineral, silky and elegant. This wine is in a refined style with lots of raspberry, sweet and sour cherry notes mixed with a distinctive minerality. Evodia means perfume. This is the perfect representation of Aragon's Grenache with its own grapes and flavors. The landscape where Evodia is grown is very special because of its altitude and slopes, resulting in a very pure and fresh wine.
The grapes come from very old vines with an average yield of 4000kg/ha, from calcareous, clay and slate soils. The grapes are de-stemmed and not crushed. Fermentation takes place in concrete tanks for 20 days with gentle extractions. The maceration lasts 7 days using the batonnage technique. This way more extraction is obtained and lower grape oxidation of the grapes takes place. A small portion of the blend matures in barrels. (10% in barrels and 90% in concrete tanks).
