Tinaja by …gratias
Single vineyard (Bobal Cerro Los Moñigos) Terroir Paco, more tan 80 years old vines, planted by Ivan´s grandfather, heritage of the family. It represents the join between human being and cosmos through vines. This is our way of understanding biodynamic philosophy, from energetic point of view and using alternative therapies in the vineyard. Rich clay soil with big amount of iron. The typical soil in Manchuela area. Bush vines without irrigation.
It´s a 100% natural wine made, without any additives, without sulfites added, where raw material expresses itself the way it chooses. Manual harvest with cluster selection in field. The grapes are fermented in small tinajas (mud jars) about 2 Hl capacity with manual pissage during three weeks. Gentle pressed using a vertical press.
Malolactic fermentation in the tinajas, as well as the aging during four months. Finally it´s slightly filtered and bottled. It’s an elaboration without fining agents neither cold stabilization; sediments can appear in the bottle.
Why “Tinaja by …gratias”: the tinajas have been used in winemaking since ancient time, being decored in different ways depending on the origin of them. We want to recover the traditional use of the tinajas.
