Winemaker’s Notes:

Low yielding bush vine fruit, hand harvested, crushed and de-stemmed. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation to 28 degrees celcius for 7 days with delistage and pigeage for colour and gentle tannin extraction followed by a short maceration. Pressed off skins using only free run wine followed by full malolactic fermentation. The wine is then cold stabilised and given a fine earth filtration prior to membrane filtration.

Arcillo – calcaire (chalk and clay soils) situated on the slopes of the Ribota valley of the Calatayud DO at an altitude of 700 – 900m above sea level. Free draining soils combined with minimal rainfall and significant differences in day and night time temperature gives rise to wines with excellent colour , aroma and distinctive varietal aromas.

This wine has been made as a bold, modern expression of the Garnacha varietal. Old vineyards  combined with our unique microclimate has ensured great concentration of fruit from extremely low yields (circa 20hl/ha).
