Vino de Parcela – Carramainas

Nowadays a vulgarism in Spanish borne out of frustration meaning I can´t believe it, get out of here etc , but actually originating form the latin Mandat Opus meaning your are obliged to do something out of necessity.

My vineyards are within the commune of Villarroya in Calatayud but we felt obliged by necesity to make these wines outside of the Denominación de Origen.


Whole bunches of white grapes hand-picked from the old single vineyard of Carramainas situated at 900 metres above sea level in the foothills of the Sierra de la Virgen in the Sistema Iberico ( Iberian mountain system in Aragón).

Whole bunched pressed, to achieve purity and freshness, fermentation then takes place in 900 litres egg-shaped fermenters using only the free-run juice.

The wine then spends 10 months sur lie with batonage before bottling with minimal filtration.
