The farm has Emendis 48 hectares of vineyards of clay soils, poor in organic matter, calcarías and high magnesium component that gives our wine the acidity necessary to enjoy the freshness in the wines whites and cavas and provide good breeding structure of red wines. The wines and champagnes are produced in Emendis exclusive product of the vineyards of the estate.
Emendis implementing integrated viticulture: it respects and coexists with the flora and fauna of the environment and is constantly aware of the climate changes that may affect the vines. The vineyards are cultivated individually, adapting to the specific needs of each variety. For example, in the vineyards of Xarel.lo takes place a long pruning while the Chardonnay gives a better quality of grapes when you make a pruning cut.
To produce white wines and wine cellar are conducted very soft pressed by pneumatic press obtaining maximum yields of 55-60%. Only free-run juice is used (must from the first pressing). In varieties like Chardonnay and Muscat, is carried out at low temperature maceration for 10 hours to extract aromatic compounds.
The fermentation of white wines are made at low temperature (between 10 and 14 days at 16°C). These wines, white wine for our TRIO and to develop the cellars, they make a transfer at the end of fermentation and then let them sit for about a month to clear up spontaneously.
Once finished the rest, a subsequent transfer is effected with old moon, to finish the process, are prepared cupages of different varieties before bottling.
In making white wine fermented in barrel, after maceration of the grape, is statically desfanga and fermented in barrels at a temperature below 17ºC. During the fermentation process takes place twice a week “batonage”.
In red wines, the objective is to obtain a high Emendis color extraction. For this reason, it is essential to harvest at the optimum moment phenolic grape processing at low temperature fully extracting rapa and enter it to marinate in conical tanks. Then performs the aging in French and American oak.
As for champagne, undergo a slow second fermentation in the bottle at low temperature in one of the most iconic parts of our winery, the wine cellar. A unique construction and unique, high-shaped arch, 10 meters recycling the concrete structure that was used in the construction of a tunnel for the AVE train line (Madrid-Barcelona).
The wines and champagnes are produced in Emendis exclusive product of the vineyards of the estate.
