Wine maker notes
Our vines contain 100% Hondarribi Zuri grape varietal and they have been planted using a trellis framework. The vine grows from a benevolent slate-rich soil and in a warm humid climate. The vineyard is directly impacted by sea winds and also the nearby forrests of oak, chestnuts and beech trees. Grape yield is kept low with just a yield of between 2, 5 and 3, 5 Kgs. per vine, in order to achieve the highest possible quality. All these features help bestow a unique personality to K5 that distinguishes it from all other wines. The scrupulous year round care and cultivation of our vineyards are tended to by our expert staff: Abel, Ruben, Mikel, and Felix. The harvest begins with the arrival of autumn and the winery only uses grape from its own vineyards. Vinification: The grape is unloaded through gravity. First there is a pelicular maceration made at 10 C over the first 12 hours, thus helping to attain greater complexity and a more intense aroma. Alcoholic fermentation: In stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16 C. Storage: From 4 to 6 months in stainless steel tanks at 9 C.
