Caballero de Olmedo

Caballero de Olmedo is our tribute to a play that the Spanish writer Lope de Vega wrote in 1620, a romantic story that takes place in our area in the village of Olmedo. The wine labels represent the three main characters of this play; Don Alonso, Don Rodrigo and Doña Inés. The popular tale says: “At night they killed the Knight, the gala of Medina, the flower of Olmedo”.


“ The Knight said... History and modernity...”

Reception of the grapes in our winery; destemming and crushing of the grapes. A maceration with the skin of the grapes intact is carried out for a few hours, and then later the grapes are lightly pressed to extract the grape must. We carry out a static settling process with help from cold temperature, and then the wine goes through the alcoholic fermentation at low temperature for 15 days. This is the moment in which the balance between sugar and acidity is adequate, and we stop the fermentation in a controlled way with cold temperature. Afterwards, a racking operation, or transfer of the wine, is carried out to eliminate the thick lees, leaving only the fine lees in the wine which we work with for several months in order to obtain wines of complexity and structure with a final touch of elegance. Finally, the clarification, stabilisation and a light filtration is done before the wine is bottled.
