“Vendimia Seleccionada” means that there is a selection made in the plot to pick up the best for this wine. Not all grapes are suitable for Almaraz, so that is why we made a selection starting for the grapes on the field. We could translate this as “selection of grapes made during harvest”. This wine has from 5 to 6 months in oak.
