Zinca Fortificado - Fortified red wine
Garnacha grown on wooded slopes near Montesa (Huesca) and harvested when phenolic maturity was reached. After receiving the grapes in the winery, the bunches were destemmed and the grapes began fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled maximum temperature of 28ºC.
At a density of 1.040, fermentation was interrupted by adding wine alcohol, which was subtracted from the
fermentation process. Alcohol is then added, raising the total alcohol content to 20%.
A total of 80 g/l. of sugar from the unfermented must was kept. The wine was pumped-over and shedded during fermentation to favour expression. Subsequent short stay in stainless steel tanks without malolactic fermentation or ageing. Without clarification with light fining.
