LUNA FRÍA 2016

LAS-LETRAS-VINO

It is a light wine but with a lot of fruit that surprises in signature cuisine.

Luna Fría comes from a privileged enclave in Rioja Alavesa, at the foot of Sierra Cantabria. This mountain range acts as a natural barrier generating the optimal conditions of solar exposure and humidity for the good growth of the vine and the ripening of the grape.

· THE WINE ·

Our wine comes from vineyards with an average age of 40 years, planted on trellises, in the areas of Elciego, Villabuena, Leza and Laguardia, with an average yield of 6,250 kg / ha.
Its calcareous clay soils with a marked slope from the Sierra Cantabria towards the Ebro river and the north-south orientation of the vines, makes us find ourselves in optimal conditions to obtain the best expression of tempranillo.
We are facing a privileged location where the mountain acts as a natural protection barrier from cold winds, allowing just enough humidity to pass through, and on the other hand, we receive the influence of the Mediterranean that provides the sun and heat necessary for the proper development of the plant.

· HISTORY ·

The full moon of the last month of the year is known as the “cold moon”, since it marks the arrival of winter, with the shortest days. As it happens near the solstice, it is also known as the full moon of long nights. It refers to the influence of the lunar phases on the wine and the vineyard, the colder areas, and the importance of the thermal contrast between day and night to obtain fresher and more elegant wines.
