CLOS DE LÔM ISIDRA
Garnacha and Tempranillo
Own dry land head-pruned vines. Average age of 30 years, with a yield of 4,000 kg/ha. Located at an altitude of 450 meters.
We select the best “pagos” from our state, to get the best Garnacha and Tempranillo grapes. The harvest is manual, early in the morning to avoid high temperatures and possible oxidation.
With a bright and deep ruby colour, Clos de Lôm Isidra shows a significant and open nose, combining perfectly the ripe red fruit with the nuances of new wood. It brings back memories of aromatic herbs. Elegant palate, velvety, well-balanced and polished tannins. Lively acidity and very persistant.
Once the grapes have arrived at the cellars, early in the morning, are processed with the newest technology. Once destemmed, crushed, and vatting in small stainless steel deposits, to achieve a higher extraction of aromas we chill the must at 12ºC during cold maceration, for 7 days, and succesive pumping over with compressed gas.
Fermentation with controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. We micro-oxygenate our wine to achieve stabilization of the colouring matter. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with our own selection of bacterias.
We age the wine separately in new 300 litre French and American oak barrels. After a minimum of 12 months of ageing we proceed to make the final blend, then it remains a minimum of 6 months in the bottle.
Ideal for pairing with red meat, glacé duck, grilled pork, stews, lamb and cured cheese.
