Casa Rojo La Marimorena Albariño 2020
The grapes for Casa Rojo's La Marimorena come from 20-years-old Albariño Vineyards in the subzone of O Rosal, Pontevedra, on the banks of the Miño River. Here the vineyards are surrounded by water, both sea and river, and the vines are cultivated on granite terraces with fairly rich, deep soils. After a manual harvest and careful selection of the grapes, they enter the cellar in the early hours of the morning for a cold pre-fermentation maceration with their skins for 10 hours. After alcoholic fermentation at an average temperature of 13 degrees and the racking process, the wine ages on fine lees for approximately 4 months. Finally, it moves to Casa Rojo to age in new French oak barrels for an additional 5 months.
