Domaine Brana, "Ohitza" Irouleguy Red 2016


Grape: 50% Tannat and 50% Cabernet Franc
Region: Irouleguy, Southwest

The parcels are from sandstone soils at mid-elevation. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel with maceration for around seventeen days. The wine is aged 70% in barrels of 3/4/5 years and 30% in cement tanks. Every three months the wine is racked and assembled and then redivided among the barrels and tanks. After a year, a final assemblage is made which then continues to mature in barrel and tank until bottling in June, eighteen months after harvest. Ohitza is the basque word for tradition.
