Production method: Integrated production (SATIVA certified)
The winter was cold and dry, followed by a spring that was hot and also dry. The colder-than-normal temperatures at the beginning of the summer meant that the red grapes ripened earlier and were harvested in a perfect state of ripe boasting good levels of acidity and concentration. The harvest began on 23 of September.
Planted in 1947
Hand-picked grapes, destemming, crushing, fermentation with indigenous yeasts and temperature control (25ºC – 28ºC) in granite ‘lagares’, foot treading and pressing in an old-style vertical press.
Aged in used French oak casks for 12 months.

Great balance and elegance, with fine mature tannins and balancing acidity. Long and persistent finish, with potential for great longevity in the bottle.
