Its production is limited since we have a small percentage of Hondarrabi Beltza (red grape) among our vineyards. We take great care and put all our soul in the selection of the grape. The harvest takes place in one day, at its optimal harvest time. After destemming, maceration and low pressure pressing, the grape must is statically settling cold. Fermented in stainless steel and with temperature control at 14oC, to keep the endogenous carbon dioxide of natural origin produced in dissolution. Finally, it is aged on its own lees for 4 to 5 months.
