Vinification of the Marqués de Murrieta Pazo Barrantes Albarino
The Albarino grapes come from the Pazo de Barrantes winery in the Salnes Valley.
The grapes are harvested by hand and immediately brought to the winery of Marqués de Murrieta. There, the berries are first carefully destemmed and gently pressed. Then the must is fermented for 30 days at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Finally, this wine remains on the fine lees for 3 months to gain density and texture.
