SANTALBA ORGANIC RESveraTROL Vintage: 2010 Kind of wine: Organic wine Generic – highest concentration of antioxidants Vintage Rating: Excellent Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo Wine making process: We use natural traditional grape-growing techniques, thus obtaining totally ecological grapes high in resveratrol, a natural anti-oxidant with many healthy properties. According to official laboratories, SANTALBA 2009 is the quality wine with the highest naturally occurring level of resveratrol in the world, over six times higher than most table wines. Harvesting was carried out by hand into 12 kilo crates to avoid damaging the grapes. The bunches were destemmed and given a pre-fermentation cold maceration in small tanks. Controlled-temperature alcoholic fermentation with vigorous daily pumping-over was followed by a long post-fermentation maceration with skin-contact to extract both colour and aroma. The wine was then transferred to French oak barrels for 8-month aging, racked off from barrel to barrel by gravity. Finally the wine was bottled without being filtered for its naturalness, strong character and great structure to mature in the silence and darkness of our bottle-store into a wine worthy of Bodegas SANTALBA.

Grapes were picked by hand into 12 kilo plastic crates to keep them from breaking. On arrival at the winery, the bunches were destemmed and the grapes underwent a pre-fermentation cold maceration in small containers. Temperature-controlled fermentation took place with vigourous daily pumping-over, followed by a long post-fermentation maceration, with skin-contact for maximum colour and aroma extraction. Malolactic fermentation occurred in French and American oak barrels. The wine was aged in barrels for 17 months with racking carried out by hand and using gravity. Finally the wine was bottled unfiltered to preserve its great character and to allow its structure to develop in the silence and darkness of our Winery. SANTALBA is the bottled essence of La Rioja.
