WINE TASTING NOTES MOCANAL 2017 HARVEST

This 2017 harvest was the first to be collected in years and the carefully selected harvest produced 1,000 liters, or 1,330 bottles. During the tasting stage, we’ve obtained the following results:

  • The Appearance: An intense, bright and clean cherry-red color with violet rims. Medium-full body.
  • The Nose: Lightly toasted aroma, thanks to the fact that it is stored in French oak barrels. The grape’s primary fruity, spicy and mineral aromas stand out.
  • The Palate: On the palate, the wine is persistent, fresh, balanced and, above all, it has a marked red-berry flavor. The wine is pleasant and easy to drink, but has a structured body and personality.

Other characteristics and production process

The grape matured sooner than expected due to a series of heat waves throughout the summer. It was harvested in late August, which is unusual, as the grape harvest has always been in early September.

The scarce rainfall received in 2017, combined with a very strong rejuvenation pruning, cut production by half. In recompense for the production lost due to weather conditions, the result is undoubtedly a better-quality



A CLOSE-UP LOOK AT OUR WINE

The grapes were selected bunch by bunch in order to obtain the best possible quality. The grape bunches were de-stemmed by hand, without using any sort of machinery, among other reasons, to avoid crushing the branches and seeds, which would have produced a wine with unwanted herbal and astringent flavors.

The grapes were lightly pressed in order to obtain a top-quality must.

The entire fermentation process was carried out under optimum temperature conditions and subjected to constant enological controls. At no time was it necessary to use yeast. The wine is a natural wine that has not been filtered or clarified. It may contain sediment.
