The Vegan Brand: Montaria is a brand that appears in honor of the Herdade's dog, Montaria, with its paw illustrated on all labels. The Montaria family thus presents a wine certified for Vegan, which did not use any animal product in its winemaking and bottling process. It should be drunk with serenity and awareness of nature. During the vinification of a wine, one of the most important stages is the clarification process, in which the must separates itself from the solid particles that still persist , in order to clarify and filter the liquid. In this process, normally, the addition of gelatines of animal origin, fish glue or egg white is used. Allied to proximity and respect for nature, Parras Wines decided to use only alternative elements, of vegetable or mineral origin, in the clarification of its products. Therefore, Montaria appears without any ingredient of animal origin or derivatives in its clarification, obtaining the Vegan certification and allowing consumers to taste a glass of wine respecting their concept and lifestyle.
Vinification and Ageing: When the grapes reach the ideal ripening stage, a night harvest is carried out to protect the aromatic profile and minimize oxidation. In the cellar they are partially destemmed and crushed, creating a fresh and aromatic must that ferments for about 12 days, at a controlled temperature between 25ºC and 28ºC, without any addition of animal products.
Tasting Notes: It has a ruby color, aromas of ripe red fruits, in the mouth with a soft and warm structure where balance predominates.
