2018 Fronton de Oro Tinto Tradicional Gran Canaria
In 1977, D. Antonio Ramírez bought a small piece of land in the hills of La Lechuza (a small town on the island of Gran Canaria) known locally as “El Frontón”, where he planted some vegetables and vines for the family’s needs. In 1999 his two sons, Pedro and Antonio, decided to bottle some wine to sell locally. The vineyards are high-elevation– many above 1,000 meters– and in many cases on terraced slopes.
Made from estate-grown Listán Negro grapes, aged 3 months in mostly used American oak barrels. (About one of 8 barrels is new.) The grapes are de-stemmed and cold-soaked for 24 hours before pressing. Vinification in stainless steel tanks, after which the wines are moved to used american oak barrels.
