Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One night and one day was the time the skins were allowed to macerate with the must in the old times, and it's the name given to the entry-level Giró (the local strain of Garnacha), the 2016 Una Noche y Un Día. It's a mix of purchased grapes from younger and older vines in the Jalón Valley fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and part of full clusters bottled after the winter. It's a primary, fruit-driven and straightforward wine, with a floral nose and a palate with unnoticeable tannins and a tasty finish. This would be the style of wine people produced for their own consumption, using shared lagars with a short maceration, as the zone was dominated by Moscatel (or raisins or almond, figs...). 2,500 bottles were filled in March 2017.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts and whole bunches (50%). Light filtering and addition sulphite before bottling.
