The best grapes of the variety Tempranillo are selected in “Finca Los Juncares”. Grapes are sourced from a single vineyard cultivated in 1957. Situated at an altitude of 660 meters, in extremely sandy soil (to a depth of 1 metre) composed of small pieces of pure limestone. The sandy surface is mixed with red clay, resulting in very low production, 1-2 kg per plant.
About the Vineyard
Traditional dry farmed viticulture with Organic Goblet trained vines. Cultivated completely by hand, with minimal human intervention and a hand harvest.
After careful selection, the grapes are picked by hand and transported in small crates to prevent damage to the fruit. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. Aging for 15 months, followed by bottling without filtering.
Intense purple colour. Aromas of tobacco, liquorice and blackcurrants. Full-bodied with hints of toast and mature fruit. Long balanced finish.
