Wine maker notes
The grapes used to make the EFE Monastrell red wine come from the bottom of the valley, with soils that are predominantly sandy. It combines the wines produced by means of three different types of maceration: carbonic maceration, cold maceration and hot fermentation with fast devatting. The fermentation is in water-cooled stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 26°C. And a short maceration is implemented during 8 days. It has been kept exclusively in stainless steel vats with a limited volume, with a moderate number of transfers to keep all its fruitiness.
