Monasterion de las Viñas

VARIETIES

Garnacha 70% - Tempranillo 20% - Cariñena 10%
Garnacha, Tempranillo and Cariñena harvested at the end of September from our 35 to 45 years-old bush-vines.

PRODUCTION

100% of our clusters were handpicked early in the morning to arrive fresh at the winery. They were then cold-macerated prior the fermentation for 96 hours at  6ºC, also known as “cold soak” .The primary fermentation took place during 8 days in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature at 28 ºC. Once the fermentation finished, the wine stayed “Post-Fermentation Maceration” from 15 to 20 days to extract the grapes potential to the utmost.

We let the Tempranillo and Cariñena aged for 12 months in French oak barrels while the Garnacha aged for 12 months in American oak barrels (225 L. barrels). We chose a final blend from the best barrels and then kept the wine in the bottle for 24 additional months.

TASTING

Spice box, pepper, violets mineral, black cherry, and plum aromas are followed by a ripe, plush, pleasure-bent red that has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6-7 years.

Cuatro Pasos Mencia

Martin Codax Cuatro Pasos Mencia

VARIETIES

100% Mencía

PRODUCTION

The discovery of four bear footprints in a magnificent vineyard in the highest areas of the Bierzo inspired the name of this wine.
Four firm steps are necessary to reach excellence: the selection of the land, the care of the vine, a suitable climate and carefulness in the vinification.
Four places: Otero, Hornija, Corullón y Valtuille with four different stories that define the character of their people and vines.
And this is how Four Steps came about, 100% Mencía elaborated from grapes chosen from the over 80-year-old vines from the slated lands located in the high areas of the Bierzo region.
After its vinification, its brief maturation is carried out in barrels of oak originating from four woods: American, Allier, Limousine and Nevers…

TASTING

Appearance: morello cherry red with violet reflections.
Nose: medium-high intensity. The varietal aromas of red friuts predominate with a subtle hint of the toasting of wood.
Palate: elegant and balanced in the mouth.
Aftertaste: very fruity varietal.
