Cume Do Avia
Colleita n. 5 Tinto
Organic certified. Three grape varieties here presenting almost equal parts: 40% Caiño Longo, 34% Sousòn, 26% Brancellao are harvested together and fermented in an old restored chestnut tonneaux of 600 lt. This is a true and authentic Galician field blend! 40% of the wine is fermented with the stems and the maceration is 3 weeks long without extracting too much tannins by soft punch downs.
The use of chestnut is typical for this area and it reflects the old-school ancestors’ tradition. Cume do Avia started to work with this type of wood since the 2015 vintage after all the old “cubas” have been bought and restored.
After the racking the wine ages in other tonneaux for approximately 5 months.
Total SO2: 38 mg. 11% AbV. 3.620 bottles produced only.
