  • An expressive and complex wine with layers of wild berried fruits, flinty, earthy notes, and a subtle hint of violet. Beautifully balanced, with a velvety texture and a touch of balsamic on the finish.

Vinified in a gravity-fed winery, which reduced the use of pumps, resulting in the gentle movement of the wine and also reduced energy consumption. The hand-harvested grapes were carefully selected and underwent a pre-fermentation maceration at 10°C. ‘Délestage’ or rack and return was employed to oxygenate the must, while simultaneously softening the tannins. Fermentation took place with wild yeasts in 5,000 litre French oak foudres at controlled temperatures of 20 to 22°C. The wine underwent malolactic conversion and was aged in the French oak foudres for eight months before being gently fined and filtered prior to bottling.

An expressive and complex wine with layers of wild berried fruits, flinty, earthy notes and a subtle hint of violet. Beautifully balanced, with a velvety texture and a touch of balsamic on the finish.

Winery

The vineyard covers 10 hectares, including espalier trained vines of 10 to 30 years and older vines of 35 to 100 years old- some of which are pre-phylloxera. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably following organic and biodynamic principles: manual weeding, using dried gorse as a cover-crop and mulching take place to preserve the soil natural humidity and nutrients. Pesticides and herbicides are not used. Irrigation is prohibited, so the vines are nourished by rainwater, underground sources and soil minerals, which lead to exceptionally long roots, up to 10 metres in length, producing concentrated and complex wines. 19 indigenous varietals are approved in the D.O. Ribera Sacra which grow side by side in the vineyard, thus the harvesting team needs to have great knowledge and experience to recognise each one, as they are harvested separately according to the D.O. regulations.
