Tintilla de Rota (Graciano) 100%
Hand harvested and bunches selected at night. Hand sorted at the selection table then destemmed before going into terracotta tanks where they macerate in the juice. After 3 days when the temperature reaches about 15° Celsius, fermentation starts spontaneously and is then temperature controlled. The grapes are then pressed and the juice allowed to ferment a second time into a second set of terracotta tanks and allowed to age for 6 months before aging in French Oak barrels for a further 10 months.
About Bodegas Forlong
The only certified organic vineyard and wine producer in the region of El Puerto de Santa Maria, Bodegas Forlong has vineyards in Forlong, Greduela and Plantalina. Created by two young entrepreneurs in love with wine, Alejandro Narváez and Rocío Áspera in 2009, this Bodega is going from strength to strength. They produced their first bottling in 2012 with a Tinto and their first Blanco in 2013.
Their philosophy on viticulture is to focus solely on quality and not quantity of the indigenous Palomino, Pedro Ximinez, Tintilla Rota and international varietal grapes such as Merlot and Syrah, taking great care with pruning to manage the yield. They employ biodynamic, natural and sustainable methods to manage the albariza rich soils and vines in the vineyards, including using the cuttings from pruning as fertiliser and the use of ground cover crops to re-introduce nitrogen back into the soil and to stress the vines to compete for nutrients. This also provides a suitable habitat for insects that will manage the harmful pests in the vineyard.
