Viticulture

Vineyard

When talking about Ysios Grano a Grano, more than the vineyard itself, it’s worth highlighting the particular way we follow to select the grapes for its production. It’s a day when the entire Ysios team, along with our families, manually de-stem -grain by grain (or “grano a grano” in Spanish)- the clusters selected for this wine. In this way, we achieve a wine that represents the purity of the Tempranillo and reflects the passion and care in its crafting.

Vintage

September – October

Process and aging

The 2021 vintage was defined by low rainfall and good weather conditions during the harvest period. With these conditions, the grapes had excellent health and quality. Overall, it was a fairly warm year, with temperatures averaging 1 to 2ºC above normal. However, the year began with the impactful Filomena storm and a cold, damp January, contributing to a sufficient water reserve, but conditions significantly softened from spring onwards.

The key point in this wine is the bunch selection of Tempranillo grapes. They undergo manual destemming, grain by grain, into used 225-litre open-top French oak barrels with a fine grain and medium toasting. Alcoholic fermentation, with gentle punching down, lasts for 15 days. Subsequently, malolactic conversion and aging take place in these same barrels.

Tasting

Color

Bright, deep cherry colour.

Nose

Redolent with red fruit such as red cherry, strawberry and red plum, a hint of minerality, wild herbs and spices. Purity and power.

Mouth

A vibrant freshness with fine, elegant tannins, and delicate hints of wood, seamlessly integrated with liquorice, herbs, and black fruit flavours. Smooth, long finish.
