VINEYARDS

The vineyard of les corts is located in the eastern part of the municipality of Cantallops, beside the Cami dels Solers, in an area of rough, dry sandy lands characterised by shallow, rocky grounds of geologically senile materials in decomposition (granites and slates) and with a low content of organic matter. The texture of the soil is sandy, with an acidic ph and a proportion of active lime of practically zero.

HARVEST

2105 Kg were selected on 19th September 2003 to elaborate this wine. Manual harvest in 5 Kg plastic cases.

VINIFICATION

Once harvested, the boxes of grape were placed safe from the rain and the grape was let dry during 59 days. Later the 1043 Kg of resulting raisins of this drying process were pressed as if they were fresh grapes. The must, concentrated in sugars, fermented slowly during months in stainless steel tank, the particular base wine for our Bac de les Ginesteres. Once the fermentation is over, a row of 20 lts glass bottles were filled and exposed to the outside, " sun and serene", for 50 months, getting older and evolving to become our Bac de les Ginesteres.
