VT Cádiz (Andalusia)
Finca Moncloa 6 Barricas is a red wine made with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Tintilla de Rota varieties by Finca Moncloa in V.T. Cádiz.
Finca Moncloa, one of the wineries of the González Byass group, was created with the aim of recovering one of the typical Tierra de Cádiz varieties that are now almost extinct in the Marco de Jerez: Tintilla de Rota (or Graciano); a real challenge in terms of commitment to the winemaking tradition, concentrated into 3 hectares of vineyards planted with this variety.
Albariza limestone soils, typical of the V.T. Cádiz area, allow the water that comes from the scarce but intense rains to remain in the subsoil in order to feed the strains throughout the year. Conditions that allow wines with local varieties such as Finca Moncloa 6 Barricas to be made. Once the grapes are at their optimum ripening point, the harvest is carried out manually and the grapes are selected in the vineyard itself.
In the cellar, the grapes pass over the selection table and are destemmed. Finca Moncloa 6 Barricas is pressed, macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels. Ageing is undergone in ten new barrels (nine of French oak and one of American oak) over 12 months.
Finca Moncloa 6 Barricas is the result of selecting the best barrels in the winery.
