Finca Bacara Time Waits For No One Stone Elephant Jumilla 2020

intense nose of ripe black fruits supported by subtle hints
of oak spice and black pepper. Balanced and warm with
a lovely savoury note on the palate.
Producer Note
Finca Bacara is based in DO Jumilla in South Eastern Spain, a region characterised by
its high elevation plains and valleys. Finca Baraca follows a philosophy that wines are
inextricably linked to the land, and are therefore committed to developing them with
minimal impact on the environment. The vineyards are farmed organically and are
situated at 900 metres elevation. Winemaker Luis Javier Pérez has crafted an original
series based on the philosophy that ‘Time Waits For No-One’ encouraging us to live
every moment - time cannot be recovered. The idiosyncratically packaged wines are
fruit-driven, highly original and like time, they are to be enjoyed and cherished.
Vineyard
TThe climate is continental with long hot summers, with temperatures reaching 40°C
and cold winters, falling to 0°C, tempered by the proximity of the Mediterranean Sea.
Planted at 900 metres elevation, the warm daytime temperatures are mitigated by
cooler evenings, creating a long ripening periods where the fruit develops
concentrated flavours balanced by refreshing acidity. The area is arid with low rainfall,
most of which falls during spring and autumn; often during violent storms. The soils are
dark, lime bearing and some have with a hard lime crust; overall, they are permeable
and have good moisture retaining properties, which allows the vines to survive during
prolonged periods of drought. They are poor in organic matter and their structure does
not support phylloxera due to the sand content. The vines are cultivated without the
use of synthetic products and are manually harvested.
Winemaking
The grapes were chosen from the best plots and carefully selected. Fermentation and
maceration took place with skin contact, in stainless steel tanks and lasted between 15
to 25 days. The temperatures were carefully monitored, to ensure they did not exceed
28°C. The wine was then aged in new American oak barrels for a period of six months,
prior to release.
Tasting Note
