Vintage: Year qualified as excellent given the high grade of grapes harvested. Data from the pluviometer shows an average annual rainfall of 242mm, which indicates a very dry year. During the months of ripening there was a temperature variation of around 18 to 20 degrees between day and night. During the harvest there were average temperatures and absence of precipitation thus facilitating the picking of the fruit and contributing to its optimal ripeness and quality.
Vineyard: The best grapes of the variety Tempranillo are selected in “Finca Los Juncares”. Single vineyard of 29 hectares cultivated in 1957. Situated at an altitude of 660 meters, in extremely sandy soil (to a depth of 1 metre) composed of small pieces of pure limestone. The sandy surface is mixed with red clay, to a depth of 30cm. Very low production, 1-2 kg per plant.
Production: After careful selection, the grapes are picked by hand and transported in small crates to prevent damage to the fruit. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. Aging for 15 months, followed by bottling without filtering.
Analysis: Intense purple colour. Aromas of tobacco, liquorice and blackcurrants. Full-bodied with hints of toast and mature fruit. Long balanced finish.
