Production

The old bush-trained Garnacha vines are planted in red ferrous-clay soils in the rolling hills of Badarán (near the upper Najerilla), due south of Haro. The vineyards are north-facing at around 650m altitude. The grapes are hand-harvested into 20kg crates, and are sorted by hand at the winery. After fermentation in stainless steel, gently plunging the cap, malolactic fermentation takes place - 65% in new French oak, and 35% in egg-shaped concrete tanks. The resulting wine is blended and bottled.

Tasting notes

" ...combining good ripeness with balance and integrated oak. The palate is juicy and elegant, with chalky, fine-grained tannins." 94 points (Luis Gutierrez, the Wine Advocate)
