Characteristics of Trasnocho
Trasnocho is an excellent wine with a strong fruity expression. Produced by Remírez de Ganuza, this wine demonstrates the wineries technical capabilites of creating great wines from the Rioja region.
Trasnocho is produced using, Tempranillo (90%), Graciano (5%) and Viura and Malvasía (5%) grapes. The grapes come from old vineyards which are on average 60 years in age.
The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes being transported to the winery in 12kg boxes. This ensures that the grapes are in optimum condition on arrival. The grapes are then put in cold storage for 24 hours at a controlled temperature of 4-6 degrees. Following this, they are placed on a selection table, where the shoulders and tips are seperated. The shoulders are at the top of the bunch, and are there exposed to more sunlight. This results in maturer grapes, that will then go on be used to make the wine after being destemmed.
Trasnocho is the most modern wine produced by the winery, produced using totally innovative methods. The winery uses a system using a PVC water bag to press the skins gently and allow them to drain overnight. This releases 70% of the wine contained in the skins themselves. It is a simple yet effective technique, ‘that prevents any friction between the skins and therefore oxidation of the wine’.
Fermentation then takes place in small stainless steel tanks and French oak vats. Finally, Trasnocho is aged for 20 months in new French oak barrels.
