Each plot of Blanco de Bernabeleva Navaherreros Bernabeleva is elaborated as a single vineyard wine, vinfication takes place in 500 and 600 l used French oak barrels, where the wine ages sur lie. After nine months, the blend is made and the wine bottled. The wine is neither stabilised nor filtrered.
The organically grown vines are between 30 and 85 years old, and are harvested manually from shallow granite rich South facing slopes next to the Aliseda creek around 750 metres above sea level.
Bodegas Bernabeleva is in the centre of Spain, a stone’s throw west of Madrid At the feet of the Cerro de Guisando and Gredos mountains this winery lets its vines stretch out their roots through the thin infertile sandy soils, formed from decomposed granite, to cling on to life. Four generations have tended these old hardy vines that have repaid the care and attention with quality fruit hand harvested from the organically managed vineyards. Plots of Garnacha, Albillo and Moscatel de Grano Menudo are vinified separately, neither fined nor filtered to ensure that both the land and love shown shine through. All plots are vinified separately and reds macerated for 30 days before both red and white are aged in mostly old French oak.
