This winery has advice from the well know oenologist Peter Sisseck, famous for producing Pingus, one of the most well-known wines in Spain.
Hacienda Monasterio Crianza is a coupage of Tinto Fino (80%), Cabernet-Sauvignon (10%) and Merlot (10%). The base is a Tinto Fino variety, the reigning variety in D.O. Ribera del Duero. The grape is grown in a unique estate with limestone soil that causes the wine to be fine and elegant.
Hacienda Monasterio follows an organic farming method, they do not use pesticides nor herbicides nor any type of chemical fertilizers.
The harvest is done by hand and the grapes are transported to the winery in small plastic crates that conserve the quality of the grapes.
Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes undergo a selection process where they only use the bunches that have encountered optimum conditions.
The grapes are destemmed and macerated for 20 days. For the fermentation, Hacienda Monasterio only uses natural yeast from their own vineyards.
Hacienda Monasterio Crianza undergoes an aging of 18 months in French Allier oak barrels, 30% new barrels and 70% barrels for 2 wines, applying racking every 3 months.
An excellent wine that strongly represents the soul of the Ribera del Duero and its Tinto Fino variety with a great aging potential in the bottle.
