going upriver, symbolises our spirit of swimming against the tide.

About this product +

Producer >

Established in 2008 by Master of Wine Fernando Mora in his garage, Frontonio's range frame the expression of old vines in the Aragon region of Spain. The style is fragrant and lifted, driven by salinity and texture. The variety of soils in the area range from volcanic to sedimentary metamorphic, influencing the wines driving depth and linear expression to their profiles. All grapes come from organically farmed vineyards. They are crushed under foot and aged in old and inert vessels. For those in pursuit of site expression with fruit on the fresher more floral side, these are your wines.

Viticulture >

We work with sustainably cultivated, dry-farmed bush vines in traditional mountain vineyards. Our wines are crafted in small quantities and aged in historic caves. San Frontonio, a martyr whose decapitated head was found going upriver, symbolises our spirit of swimming against the tide. Growing area: Slate and sand Altitude: 650-700 m Inclination: 15-20% on average Age of vines: +50 years

Winemaking >

Harvest: 4th Sept hand-picking in 18 kg boxes Ageing: Age of vines: +50 years 11 months in underground concrete tanks
