100% Garnacha from old vines in D.O. Garnacha
James Suckling 2019: 93 points. “Very fresh and lively aromas of violets, blueberries and raspberries. Super fresh and fruit-focused. The palate has a very clearly defined feel with raspberries and brambleberries, framed in neatly defined, long tannins. Good acidity from this elevated site. Drink over the next six years.”
Hand harvested Dry farmed old vines
From old bush vines in the mountainous, arid municipality of Villarroya de la Sierra in what could be considered extreme viticulture and “Extreme Garnachas”. An ideal area for a fresher Garnacha with bright acidity and color due to large diurnal temperature shifts. Bright sunny days and cold nights.
Grapes from selection of vineyards 800 metres above sea level, with poor clay calcareous rocky soil. The vines are 30-100 years old, dry-farmed gnarled bush vines.
The fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at 25º. Aged on its fine lees in concrete for 7 months.
