Production Process

Grapes for Bodegas Imperiales come from their own 21 hectares of vineyards in Gumiel de Izán and La Aguilera, Spain, within the Ribera del Duero region. They use 100% Tempranillo (Tinta Fina) grapes, some of which are over 100 years old. These aged vines bring concentrated flavors and complexity to the wine. The grapes are hand-harvested at peak ripeness to ensure the best quality and flavor. The juice ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for about 10 days, allowing for optimal extraction of color, flavor, and tannins from the grape skins. After fermentation, there's an additional 5-7 days of maceration on the skins, intensifying the wine's color, structure, and flavor profile. Next, the wine ages for 6 months in a mix of French and American oak barrels. The French oak gives subtle notes of spice, toast, and vanilla, while the American oak adds bolder aromas of vanilla, coconut, and caramel. The wine is then blended and slightly filtered.

Abadía de San Quirce 6 meses is a young wine meant to be enjoyed within a few years of its release; it doesn't need extra aging before consumption.
