LAFOU EL SENDER
70% Red Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Morenillo
Winemaking plot by plot. The grapes are harvested manually and are immediately refrigerated at 5ºC in the winery. They are then transferred to stainless-steel tanks with an aerial pump over (pigeage) system.
The grapes are fermented at 26ºC with three daily pump overs, which results in a more harmonic extraction of the tannins. The wine is then aged for 6 months in 300L Central European oak barrels.
This wine includes a small percentage of the Morenillo variety as part of an experimental project to recover this local grape.
The name “El Sender” means “The Path”, which was inspired by a path that winds through the vineyards at Mas Gabrielet.
