Characteristics Monasterio de las Viñas Gran Reserva
Monasterio de las Viñas Gran Reserva is a wine from the D.O. Carignan made by Bodega Monasterio de las Viñas. It's a blend of Grenache (60%), Tempranillo (30%) and Carignan (10%) from vineyards planted in a low vine plantation system. The vines are between 40 and 50 years old. The harvest is carried out by hand first thing in the morning to ensure that the grape bunches stay fresh. They are subject to a cold maceration for 96 hours at a temperature controlled at 6ºC. The wine ferments for 8 days at a temperature controlled at 28ºC in stainless steel deposits. After the fermentation, the wine macerates for 15 to 20 days to extract its full potential. The varieties are aged separately. The Tempranillo and the Carignan age in French oak barrels and the Grenache in American oak barrels, for 24 months. Using the best barrels the final blend is made and the wine is bottled. The wine remains in the bottle for at least 36 months before going onto the market.
