"Keeping a close watch on the quiet journey toward maturity"



Cellar

The attention to detail, evident in the Numanthia vineyards, would count for little if the wines were not handled with the same care in the cellars. Here, the cellar master keeps a close watch on the French bordelais barrels in which Termes, Numanthia and Termanthia are gently aged. While all seems still in the cool, dark silence of the cellars, each wine pursues its own quiet journey toward maturity. The cellar master follows them closely every step of the way to ensure their course is a smooth path, from the moment the wines are first put into barrel until they are ready for bottling.
The wines place different demands on the cellar master. For Termes, the priority is to retain the natural fruit vibrancy, while Numanthia calls for the greater depth and balance that come with maturity. Termanthia is more complicated still, being aged twice in new French barrels to bring out the wine’s inherent complexity. Whether they spend a few months or several years developing in the oak, each wine receives the same meticulous care in the cellar as it did on the vine.
