White wine, 100% Albariño, Rías Baíxas D.O., 4 months crianza on lees.

MAKING:

In order to make this wine we start from a selection of Albariño grapes that come from vines which have an average age of 25 years and produce 7.300 kilos per hectare. Their soils are excellent for the growth of this grape variety. The grape arrives at a sorting table, then it is destemmed and it goes through a tubular exchanger at a temperature of 5ºC. The cold paste goes through two rotary macerators where an eight hour pre-fermentation maceration takes place. Once the maceration process has finished, the free-run juice is liberated without pressing the wine. Then it is statically desludged for 36 hours at a temperature of 10ºC. After that, the clean must is transfered to a new stainless steel tank and the fermentation process takes place at 14ºC during the next twenty days. Once the fermentation process has ended, the gross lees are removed and then proceed with an aging process with lees for four months with weekly batonnage.

 BODEGAS EL INICIO is a small winery yet is brimming with technology and the knowledge necessary to elaborate and age great wines.

 The winery it is situated in Ribera del Duero, under the imposing presence of Peñafiel Castle, a Medieval fort.

 Created with one clear goal: to elaborate high quality wines, wines destined for barrel aging , wines without hurry, elegant and full of flavor.

 Wines which in their days gave their name to the Denomination of Origin, which our Director and associate Angel Luis Margüello helped to develop with care and personality back in the 80´s and 90´s .These types of wines, which under his experience, have been the true icons of the area and which are now enjoying a comeback. The wine´s potency falls back to make way for elegance, roughness turns to smoothness, elegant tannins form from aggressive tannins and peace evolves from chaos.

 Our winery is set in the Ribera del Duero but we have also been making wine for many years in other areas such as Castilla y León, Rías Baixas and Rueda (here with our 23 hectares of vineyard).
