Capricho de Landaluce 2006
Vineyards: Fuente de Espino, Carravalseca and San Lázaro. For this variety of wine we made several selections: firstly the vineyards, grape bunches, and then casks. The grapes were handpicked in small 20 kg crates, and when they reached the winemaking facilities we picked out the best bunches. The grapes used are from vineyards over 80 years old.
Soil: Clay and lime
Alcohol content: 14º.
Separate fermentation was carried out in 500-litre French oak casks. Fermentation and subsequent maceration took 2 weeks. Malolactic fermentation was performed, and the crianza process carried through in new French oak casks from several manufacturers, where the product remained for 18 months. The wine was then directly bottled, with no stabilisation or filtration procedures.
Winemaking process: 18 months in French oak casks.
Visual: Garnet cherry, with darker hues.
Nose: Creamy to the nose, with sweet notes of strawberry, cream, milk and coffee. There are also some hints of violets, and elegant cedar and graphite for a harmonious balance.
Palate: An intense wine, fresh and full of flavour, decidedly fresh and fruity, with quality tannin and bold acid fruits. Finally this develops into toast, cream, caramel, coffee and milk.
