Sketch is a 2 barrel production wine coming from 40 year old vines. Sketch is the wine that better explains the genius of Raúl Pérez. It is also the wine that put him on the map: Sketch is the wine he ages under the water on the Aurosa estuary at a depth of about 15-18m below sea level.
First, the must is macerated for 24 hours in a stainless steel tank. Afterwards, Sketch is aged in 750 litre used French oak barrels before the ageing under the sea takes place. The lack of oxygen, the greater amount of pressure under the sea and the low, but constant temperatures afect the ageing of the wine in a unique way, making it taste unlike any other wine. Because the grapes already have a nearly perfect acidity level, there is no malolactic fermentation.
