Characteristics of Escombro
Escombro is a red wine produced by Laboratorio Rupestre – Erik Rosdahl. This wine is made using only Alicante Bouschet grapes, a cross-breed of the Grenache and Petit Bouschet varieties.
The wines produced by Laboratorio Rupestre – Erik Rosdahl are very personal and produced in limited quantities, since the winery only uses their own vineyards. The vines used are almost 100 years old, giving a low yield, which results in each grainbetter focus the characteristics of the soil.
The grapes used to make Escombro come from Monte Arabí, which is located in the region of Murcía near the borders with Castilla La Mancha and Valencia. The vineyards, located about 1,050 metres above seal level, mainly grow on limestone soils. Rainfall appears sporadically while the temperature difference between day and night is noticable.
Once harvest has taken place and the grapes have been transported to the winery, the various phases of the winemaking process are carried out in a natural manner. The process makes the final product different and little resembling wines that we are used to enjoying. No sulphates are added to the wine, and only indigenous yeasts are used. This results in a wine that conveys a true representation of the vineyard.
Before the various processes of winemaking, the grapes are left to stand in earthen jars, where for 10 days intracelular maceration takes place. Following this, alcoholic fermentation takes place for three or four days with various pumpings.
Escombro, before being bottled and placed onto the market, is aged for ten months in oak barrels which have already been used, so that the wine does not draw too much of its character from the nuances of the wood.
