An exceptionally dry year across Spain has resulted in a modest crop often compensated by good potential quality. The viticultural year in Rioja was generally without any serious incidents with the exception of two hailstorms in Alavesa in June and July. As a result some vineyards around the towns of Samaniego, Baños de Ebro and Leza lost their entire production this year and others were damaged. That said, the 2012 crop in Rioja is the healthiest crop for 10 years. with Tempranillo showing particularly good colour and ripeness.
150ha of vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soil at an average height of 400m above sea level. Meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards, coupled with the extreme climate, offer the perfect conditions for the production of great wines. Grapes are all hand-picked in early October.
Fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature with eighteen days maceration. 4 months spend in oak.
Beautifully balanced, with crisp tangy citrus notes overlaid with hints of almond and vanilla.
Ideal with paella and all types of seafood.
