O ALBOREXAR FERRON / CAINHO & SOUSON
Kind of wine: Red Ribeiro.
Varieties: 100% Ferron / 50% Cainho 50 % Sousón.
Elaboration: Vines of the variety (Ferrón or Caiño and Sousón) were selected from different plots, specimens with very little load, which favored obtaining the desired state of maturity.
They are harvested and transported to the winery, where they are partially destemmed and covered in open vertical French oak barrels. There the maceration takes place a few days before starting the fermentation, which occurs spontaneously with the yeasts of the grape.
The fermentation takes place slowly, doing handmade overpumping and plunging twice a day.
After the fermentation, the unpressed wine is bled to another closed barrel where it performs part of the malolactic fermentation. It remains in barrels for around 4 months ( Ferron case) or 9 months (Caíño and Sousón case) and then it is transferred to a steel tank for decanting, in a natural way, before bottling. This wine was not stabilized or filtered, so it may contain natural precipitates.
