More information Castillo de Aza Roble 2018 Red Wine
The Viña Arnáiz winery and vineyards are located in the municipality of Haza, in a strategic enclave, where Juana de Haza, a noblewoman of Castile, began to cultivate vineyards at the foot of her fortress in the 12th century. These vineyards gradually spread and became famous all over the world for their extraordinary quality. Our winery is located in this fortress, with an extension of 80 hectares within the La Magdalena estate, which includes plots of vineyards on gentle slopes where we grow the traditional Tinta del País, together with new varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
In the centre of our estate there is a tower and the underground cellars dating back to the 17th century with their attached wine presses. The current winery, which has been renovated while maintaining its historical character and facilities, has a surface area of 12,000 m2, with a production and bottling capacity of 18 million bottles per year, and a capacity of 10,000 American oak Bordeaux barrels. The winery has been awarded two consecutive years as the best winery in Spain by the prestigious Vinitaly International Competition.
During pruning, the plots whose fruit will form part of the coupage of this wine are selected. After the careful treatment that the vines receive throughout the year, the date of the harvest is set when the grapes have reached the optimum degree of ripeness in each plot, and the grapes are harvested by hand. Once the bunches arrive at the winery, they are de-stemmed and undergo maceration in vats, which is extended until the desired balance in the wine's composition is reached. Devatting is carried out by gravity without mechanical action and the wine obtained, after an initial racking, undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in new French and American oak barrels for 425 days, during which time it is racked three times to help oxygenate the wine. After this period, the wine will remain in the bottle for a year to complete its ageing period.
