Grape Varieties: Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The winemaking of “Kalos” aims to be the exponent of what our area can give of one self in each harvest. Because of this reason, we are looking for the oldest vineyards, with the best concentration (lowyield) and best health and quality grapes. All grapes are checked on the selection table, removing as much as necessary. Then we proceed with alcoholic fermentation of each vineyard (singlevineyard), that means, we need as many tanks as vineyards selected for this product and as small as the harvest handpicked from each vineyard.
Alcoholic fermentation takes place in a temperature range between 25º Cand 28ºC, looking for a fruity character. In order to get a high tannin extraction, we press grapes after over 25 days in tank.
Once the wine is finished, barrel aging starts for about fourteen months in French Oak, getting a colour natural stabilization and the oak tannin support; then after a soft filtering, we proceed with bottling.
