Brandy BATTONAGE

“Very fine distillate of Cosecha wine aged on lees...”

A perfume of the most aromatic and fruity raw material. This Brandy does not need to be old to have a very high quality. Once distilled our “Cosecha”, the most delicate of our sweet wines, has been aged in French Oak on its own lees. Reminds the wine from which it comes, because we seek in it the “fruit purity”, instead of the “old age” and that purity is evident in each sip. There are no excesses of oak that hide the clean and ripe fruit from which it comes …

Production

When making our “Cosecha” wine, exposure to the sun slowly and gradually dehydrates each grape grain, evaporating water and concentrating natural fructose. Only 200 liters of must are obtained for each ton of fresh grapes, which ends up giving the wine a very low final yield. This wine acquires 13% natural alcohol when fermented in French Oak barrels. Then we slow down the process of alcoholic conversion by covering the barrel in an airtight way, which favors the preservation of aromas and fruit flavors, which we do not want to lose due to oxidation. Finally we distill this wine and let the result rest again in wood.

In this delicate elaboration, we limit the aging to 8 months in the French Oak barrel of the same wine that we have distilled, avoiding excess of oak and astringency - which we could only balance after many years of aging, in other barrels that contained our Pedro Ximenez Very Old. On the other hand, in the same barrel of our “Cosecha”, on the “lees” of its wine fermentation and with a continuous battonage that brings ripe fruit flavors and aromas, this Brandy - after a gentle filtration -, opens to a universe of scented sensations, full of flavors and aromas other than oak. This elaboration starts from such a delicate raw material, that it is not worth waiting for the wood to hide its fruit emotions ... It maintains the alcoholic degree at 40%, so that, despite that fruitiness, it maintains its character as a pure and authentic Brandy .


Tasting Notes

VISUAL: Straw gold very clear, clean and bright, subtly oxidized, but without the typical age ting of the Solera System. Visually it transmits a lot of purity of origin, since there are not identifiable edges, nor noticeable differences in tones in the glass, both at a standstill and in rotation.

OLFATIVA: A standstill glass is a clear distillation with the own aromas of the wine that gives origin to it. There are notes of ripe plum but not passified. When putting the glass in rotation comes to memory green apple, without the alcoholic volatility unbalancing the exuberant and clean fruit manifestation of this special distillate.

GUSTATIVA: The obvious manifestation of its alcoholic degree does not detract in any way the fruits that are enhanced in the palate, as well as the volume in the mouth acquired with the battonage of the lees. The aftertaste is long, although delicate and subtle. Nothing heavy, pleasant and extremely silky.
