Once the grapes have arrived at the cellars, early in the morning, they are processed with the newest technology. Once destemmed, crushed, they are transfered to small stainless steel deposits. To achieve a higher extraction of aromas they chill the must at 12ºC during cold maceration, for 7 days, and succesive pumping over with compressed gas.
Fermentation with controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. they micro-oxygenate the wine to achieve stabilization of the colouring matter. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with their own selection of bacterias.
They age the wine separately in new 300 litre French and American oak barrels. After a minimum of 12 months of ageing they proceed to make the final blend, then it ages in bottle for minimum of 6 months.
With a bright and deep ruby colour, Clos de Lôm Isidra shows a significant and open nose, combining perfectly the ripe red fruit with the nuances of new wood. It brings back memories of aromatic herbs. Elegant palate, velvety, well-balanced and polished tannins. Lively acidity and very persistant.
