Winemakers words

Good everyday wine. Corriente is our tribute to an unofficial and traditional wine classification in use in our region during the early XXth century, which we found very interesting: “Corriente” (common, every day) wines vs. “Selecto” (select) wines.
A wine that is neither deceitful nor ostentatious, Corriente is a simple and approachable wine that represents a region, its culture and of course its wine.

 

TERROIR
Various soils from the Lanciego area, located between 480 and 650m and with different orientations. Predominantly poor, shallow, stony calcareous soils of the Tertiary, developed on sandstones or marls. Grapes from our organic vineyards and also from some suppliers practicing traditional viticulture. Bush vines. Manual harvest in boxes.

 

VINIFICATION
Fermentation with native yeasts in 6500 / 8500kg cement tanks. Matured for 10-12 months in barrels and foudres of different ages.

 

The 2017 vintage is mainly characterized by the intense spring frosts at the end of April as well as by the high temperatures during summer. These weather conditions caused an early harvest and provoked much lower yields than usual. The wines are expressive and well-balanced.
