La Banda del Argílico
Ripe grapes in perspective from two different vineyards in the municipality of Nieva, both planted in ungrafted.
The first with sandy soil (in the meadow of the vineyards) and the second sandy soil with gravel (Sarabia) low yields in the field and low yields in wine cellar make this possible.
It is a nod to bands argillite with our soils and where the roots sink to capture the minerality and where the exchange of nutrients is done.
The bands have many functions, make buffer so that moisture does not evaporate and always maintain an acceptable water status in plants .TB here is where microbes spend the summer heat not to die !!!. And where exchange occurs in the clay / humic complex.
This wine is the result of 2 harvests a first looking for freshness, low pH and low alcohol and the second and majority is giving maturation, finesse, fruitiness, length on the palate and structure, this union of the two musts make the magic of the balance and equilibrium.
The wine remains in contact with its fine lees for 5 ½ months.
Manual like all grapes that go into Microbiowines.
This wine is the youngest from Ismael Gozalo line.
