Temperature-controlled fermentation at 25ºC and maceration with the skins during 8 hours.
Edetària is Joan Àngel Lliberia’s personal winemaking project. Based on his firm belief in the potential of Terra Alta vineyards, he strives to express the land through its native grape varieties. The winery, an unusual building of straight, modern lines is located amidst vineyards above the Gandesa plain. From this viewpoint, the winery provides visitors with sweeping views over the Gandesa plain, the Pàndols and Cavalls mountain ranges as well as the Ports Nature Reserve (Parc Natural dels Ports). "Edetària’s celler was built back in 2003 surrounded by a part of Lliberia family vineyards. It is a singular building with lean modern architecture, well integrated in a stunning landscape. Every element: vineyards, cellar, la Plana de Gandesa, Pàndols and Cavalls mountains and Serralada dels Ports National Park, blend together giving rise to a unique scenario. Edetària’s only way to select the best grapes from each vine is to handpick them. Grapes are stored in small boxes and cooled down to 0º-5º and finally a second triage at the sorting table is made. By doing so, only those grapes with the right polyphenolic ripeness find their way into the vats. Winemaking vats are of small sizes. All of them designed and equipped to vinify each plot separately and thus keep close track of it progress and every intervention leading the way from the vineyards into your wine glass. During wines aging, it is our goal to preserve and enhance the nuances and character of every single vineyard and. Working shoulder to shoulder with selected coopers entitles us to select those barrels that better suite Edetària wines expression and ultimately assembling all of heir nuances to bottle wines with a unique personality".
Via Terra Rosé wine is made with DO Terra Alta’s indigenous grape Garnatxa peluda from Edetària’s youngest vineyards located in la Plana de Gandesa.
Grapes are handpicked in 15 kg boxes and cooled for 48 hours, followed by a soft destemming, then skin contact is allowed at 5ºC for a few hours. After bleeding the must fermentation occurs at 16º. Once fermentation is over, we start working with fine lees to achieve elegant creaminess.
