Contino Reserva

Contino Reserva is made with carefully selected grapes from our own vineyards, which surround the Finca de San Rafael, were hand harvested with a high level of selection in the field and at a point of perfect ripeness. De-stemming was followed by a pre-fermentation cold soak of 24-48 hours. Alcoholic fermentation began spontaneously in the 12,000 litre stainless steel vats at a temperature of 26-28ºC. There followed a post-fermentation maceration with pumping over until racking. Malolactic fermentation also occurred spontaneously.

The wine was then aged for 18 months in oak barrels of which 20% were American and 80% French, and following which the wine completed its ageing in bottle in the cellars of the winery until its release.
