Description: Santo Cristo is the third largest winery in the DO of Campo de Borja. It is located in the village of Ainzon at the foot of Moncayo, the highest Aragon mountain, which dominates the landscape and climate. The vineyards are located in chalk and clay free-draining soils on the slopes of Moncayo. The soil content combined with minimal rainfall and significant differences in day and night time temperatures give rise to wines with excellent color, aroma and distinctive varietal flavors. The average age of the vines is 40 years. The grapes were harvested by hand in September and October 2011 from selected old bush vine fruit. The fruit was then crushed and destemmed. Must remained in contact with the skins for 24 to 48 hours, then free-run juice was bled to controlled temperature stainless steel fermenters.

After fermentation,the wine was transferred sur lie back to tank to be lees stirred for another 4 to 6 weeks to integrate flavors and build up mouthfeel, length and complexity.
