Assemblage

Micro-vinifications that allow us to make wines that are the genuine expression of the terroir

We produce our wines under the same quality standards and winemaking process, with variation in grape variety and ageing time.

Manual harvest in 16 kg grape crates guarantees the arrival of whole bunches to the winery and prevents oxidation and microbial spoilage.
Currently, Bodega Isasmendi produces approximately 12,000 bottles of wine per year. This small amount allows us to ferment in bins of 400 kg of grapes and have practices such as manual punching down, constant observation and care of the fermenting must that it is evident in the final product.
Time is a fundamental ingredient in the expression of extreme altitude wines. That is why all our red wines spend 6 to 12 months in French oak barrels (mostly second and third use) and at least three years of ageing in the bottle. The objective is to achieve the integration of phenolic components through micro-oxygenation and the evolution of the aromatic potential to obtain greater complexity.

As a result of this careful and patient process, we obtain wines that are the authentic expression of an extreme altitude terroir.
