Bespén Crianza 2020

Elaboration: After the night harvest, the grapes are transported to the winery in a short period of time. Destemming and gentle crushing precede fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature range of 26/28º. After devatting and malolactic fermentation, the wine rests for 9 months in French and American oak barrels before returning to stainless steel tanks where it remains for a few more months before bottling.

Impressions of the processor: Cabernet Saugvinon has a good balance in these lands, many kilometres south of the left bank of the Garonne. It preserves the acidity (freshness) and tannins of its origin without renouncing to an excellent maturation, forming a wine with "rasmia" and flavour, where the fruit stands out over its good ageing in barrels, excellent for its current consumption and for cellaring.

Characteristics of the 2019-20 agricultural year: Temperatures in autumn were mild and rainfall was normal for the season. After a wet, mild winter with many persistent fogs, a very rainy spring arrived which produced a considerable shift in the bunches, reducing production. The continuous squalls and droughts that crossed the peninsula produced rainfall that doubled the normal rainfall for this cycle. At the beginning of April a frost again reduced production. May had everything, the beginning of mildew, hail on the 29th..., June continued with almost tropical conditions due to the range of temperatures, rainfall and humidity; with a lot of effort, management of the vegetation and seven treatments of copper and sulphur we were able to control the fungal attacks, it is fair to say that the episodes of cierzo (local wind) after the rain were of great help in eliminating the humidity. After a very dry and hot summer, it was quiet, a very high average temperature and little rainfall led us to the end of September where a slow and complete ripening of the clusters was completed.
