Don Simon Seleccion Shiraz
Can be served on its own or with white meats and fish.
Opera Prima Syrah has high color intensity with violet trim, very attractive and clean. Floral aroma of lilacs well accompanied by wild fruits and a very attractive spiced base.
Juicy and pleasant on the palate, broad development with a long and tasty finish. Well balanced acidity that enhances the youth of this wine.
With the intention of developing a young and very fresh wine we set the harvest date based on the most ideal characteristics for the development of a young wine, and on our vines we find the ideal acidity and sugar balance.
Before beginning fermentation the already ground grape is kept at 10°C for 48 hours in order to extract, in the absence of alcohol, the terpene components producing the characteristic aromas of this varietal (wile red and black fruits and berries) as well as the anthocyanins responsible for its bluish and deep red colors.
The alcoholic fermentation takes place with oxygenated maceration below 25°C in order to preserve the aromatic potential. Once it is fermented, two thirds of the sugar is devatted, cooling the wine must to 20ºC, the temperature at which the alcoholic fermentation completes and malolactic fermentation occurs.
After light clarification and subsequent decanting it is stabilized at negative temperatures and bottled.
