Elaboration White Diamond Semi-sweet
The grape clusters are received in a stainless steel hopper to be later destemmed (separation of berries and brooms) and then their berries are ground. The contact with the skin of grapes, pulp, seeds and must occurs in stainless steel tanks for approximately 14 hours at an average temperature of 10ºC. After this time, the must is separated from the solid parts and ferments separately at an average temperature of 16 ºC. After part of the fermentation, it is paralyzed by cold systems in order to maintain the natural sugars that give this wine one of its peculiarities.
What type of wine is Diamante Semidulce
Aromatic and fruity white wine with very good sensations in the mouth.
The Franco Españolas winery
Bodegas Franco-Españolas was born in 1890 as the union between France and Spain at a peak in Rioja, when the French came to the region trying to replace their vineyards devastated by phylloxera disease. It was the origin of the "fine Rioja wines".
All this led Frederick Anglade Saurat, a native of Bordeaux, to found Bodegas Franco-Españolas in 1890. The first harvest, a year later, results in the winery's iconic wines: Diamante and Estilo Burgundy. This was renamed Rioja Bordón in the 50s, and in 2017 it was redesigned as Bordón.
In 1920, fifteen years after Anglade's death, the French sold their shares and the winery became entirely Spanish. King Alfonso XIII visits the winery in 1903 and in 1925. Ernest Hemingway will do so in 1956.
The end of the Dry Law in the USA in 1933 and the resurgence of the Regulatory Council in 1953 will give a boost to the exports of Rioja wines. Franco-Spanish has a presence in large European cities, in addition to Caracas, Buenos Aires, Havana and New York. 1964 is an excellent vintage, perhaps the best of the century.
