The aroma of the terroir
SJ Anteportalatina is a wine made in limited quantities. The plot from which it comes was replanted in 1989 with selected Viuras from the family vineyards and has a high limestone content, a feature which will have great influence on the character of the wines which are made from its fruit. In SJ Anteportalatina the true nature of the landscape from which it springs is expressed to the full. 100 % Viura, it is a wine which transmits the terroir through its nose and captivates you with its freshness, balance and complexity on the palate.
Vinification: After careful selection in the vineyard, the grapes are cold-macerated for several hours upon reception in the winery. Gentle pressing and the start of alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats. After three days the fermentation continues in 225 litre and 500-litre French oak barrels. Cask ageing takes place for 12 months in the same casks.
