The fruit is predominantly old bush vine Garnacha, with some additional Tempranillo. The fruit is cultivated in Rioja's Cárdenas river valley. This is a cool climate zone with deep, reddish soil of clay and iron, at the foot of the Sierra de la Demanda mountains. Bunches are destemmed, but not crushed, before fermentation takes place in stainless steel using native yeasts. There is minimal pumping over and a short maceration period. The wine ages for four months on lees in tank before bottling.
Aromas of bright bramble fruit leading to a palate with crunchy wild berries and appealing black pepper notes. Supple tannins balanced by fresh acidity.
Drink with pork dishes, albondigas (meatballs) or paella.
