  • Vineyards: Very old vines located up in the mountain at 900 metres altitude in a watershed area. Soil is rocky, with a high amount of pebbles and slates. These features make it find us with a unique vineyard, able to express the true personality of the Garnacha grape.
  • Wine Making / Aging: Manual harvest in 2o kilo crates. Fermentation took place at 26º C in stainless steel deposits, macerating for 14 days. The wine is transferred to French Oak barriques along with its lees (dead yeast cells and other particles remaining in a wine after fermentation. They settle as sediment or creamy mud at the bottom of the fermenting barrique) and ages for 4 months. Then is bottled and left to age for another 2 years.
