Cantauri White Bodegas Cantauri

HISTORY

The Carlos Alonso white wine was created by the third generation of our winery, as before then the white grape varieties were only used in the preparation of red wines.

VINEYARD

Bodegas Alonso González has 1 hectare of VIURA white grapes, 0.5 ha of white MALVASIA grapes and 0.2 ha of other white grape varieties. These are situated at an altitude of 520 m above sea level, with clay-calcareous soils.

VARIETY

80% VIURA, 20%MALVASÍA

WINEMAKING

After handpicking, the grapes are pneumatically pressed. Once the must is obtained, it is cooled to 7ºC for 48 hours, the impurities are removed (racking) and the process of alcoholic fermentation begins at a maximum temperature of 13 ºC. Once fermentation comes to an end, the wine stabilizes and is ready to be bottled.
