MISSION WINES Resistance 2019, Spain (Red)
Certification : Organic
Grapes : Syrah
Region : Ribeira Sacra, Spain
Vinification : Clusters were sorted by hand before being stomped whole cluster in a 500L open-top barrel. No SO2 was used at crush. Maceration lasted 18 days, with fermentation proceeding nice and slow. Progressively gentler pigeage and finally manual pumpovers using a bucket were employed to keep the cap moist. After pressing, the wine was allowed to settle before being transferred to a used 225L barrel, in which it rested on its lees for ten months without racking.
