“From, high altitude, low-yielding, old grenache vines in the region of Calatayud. Moderately big, juicy grenache with a satisfyingly rich, smooth texture. Plum, dark berry and spice flavours with a suggestion of violets. A very appealing wine offering great value at this price.” – Bob Campbell MW

Tasting Note: The wine exhibits great aromatic complexity and richness with mineral and blueberry notes leading to a savoury and spicy palate with good balance and acidity.

Winemaking Notes: The grapes come from vines that are 30-40 years old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located high on the hillsides, 700-900 metres above sea level. The vineyards are mainly planted in decomposed slate and gravel/clay soils. The fermentation was carried out in small stainless steel tanks for 15 days at temperatures below 27 C and then spent a short period of two months in French oak barrels.
