This wine has been made as a concentrated, spicy expression of the Garnacha varietal. An average vine age of well over 45 years combined with the unique microclimate of has ensured great concentration of fruit from extremely small yields (circa 17hl/ha). Careful temperature controlled fermentation and the collaboration of New World trained winemakers and local knowledge has produced a fruit driven wine typical of the Calatayud area. Old concentrated bush vine fruit, hand harvested, crushed and destemmed. Temp controlled alcoholic fermentation to 28 degrees celsius for 7 days with pumpovers and delistage for colour and 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.
