            [Notes4] => 70% Verdejo and 30% Viura. 40% barrel fermented in mix of American and French oak. The tropical fruit character of the Verdejo is complemented by the lemony zing of the Viura, all wrapped up in creaminess from partial barrel fermentation.

            [WineMakingNotes] => 2020 was a precocious vintage in terms of the growing cycle and phenology: early bud burst, early flowering, early fruit set and veraison. Spring was accompanied by twice the average rainfall. The beautiful side of 2020 was our total confinement to the vineyards where we got to know our parcels more intimately.  Old, concentrated bush vine fruit, hand harvested, crushed and destemmed. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation to 28 degrees C for 7 days with délestage and pigeage for colour and gentle 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 prior to membrane filtration.
Grown in chalk and clay soils situated on the slopes of the Ribota valley in DO Calatayud at 700 – 900m above sea level. Free-draining soils combined with minimal rainfall and significant differences in day and night time temperatures produce wines with excellent colour, aroma and distinctive varietal aromas.
This wine has been made as a bold, modern expression of the Garnacha varietal. Old vineyards, combined with the unique microclimate, have ensured great concentration of fruit from extremely small yields (circa 20hl/ha).

Winemaking >

2020 was a precocious vintage in terms of the growing cycle and phenology: early bud burst, early flowering, early fruit set and veraison. Spring was accompanied by twice the average rainfall. The beautiful side of 2020 was our total confinement to the vineyards where we got to know our parcels more intimately. Old, concentrated bush vine fruit, hand harvested, crushed and destemmed. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation to 28 degrees C for 7 days with délestage and pigeage for colour and gentle 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 prior to membrane filtration. Grown in chalk and clay soils situated on the slopes of the Ribota valley in DO Calatayud at 700 – 900m above sea level. Free-draining soils combined with minimal rainfall and significant differences in day and night time temperatures produce wines with excellent colour, aroma and distinctive varietal aromas. This wine has been made as a bold, modern expression of the Garnacha varietal. Old vineyards, combined with the unique microclimate, have ensured great concentration of fruit from extremely small yields (circa 20hl/ha).
