Subsequent to destemming, the grapes were cold macerated for several hours. After the free-run must was drained off and clarified by static debourbage (racking of the must), we fermented it in stainless steel tanks for 7 days. Our aim here was to preserve the fruit notes as much as possible. This was accomplished by fermenting at a low temperature (15 degrees Celcius), enhancing the fruit aromas. Subsequent contact with fine lees added the necessary structure to give it the elegance that is so characteristic of Viura. 

Bodegas Patrocinio, the producer of 'Zinio' is based in the town of Urunuela in Rioja Alta, the classic region in Northern Spain renowned for its tempranillo-based wines. In 1986 a group of grape-growers decided to combine their production to form Bodegas Patrocinio and make branded wines. Until then all the product of the vineyard was sold to other wineries in Rioja. Zinio has been one of their most successful brands. The Zinio sees 6 months in oak while the Zinio Crianza is oak-aged for 14 months. The Gran Zinio Cava originates in Penedes, the home of Cava and is made by the traditional method from the traditional Cava varieties, Xarello, Macabeo and Parellada.
