Old vine garnacha

The fruit is sourced from 30-year-old bush vines cultivated on stony soils, planted at diferent altitudes in the Cariñena district of Aragon. We work with two distinct parcels: low-lying vineyards contribute fruit and alcohol to the blend, while our higher elevation plots (600-700m) bring wonderful freshness and structure to the Grenache. These well-drained soils, rich in glacial deposits, are naturally conducive to delivering a low yield – typically 4 tons per hectare.

Vinification

The grapes are subject to a cold maceration for 72 hours before fermentation begins. In order to produce a silky and approachable style of wine, the grapes are pressed before primary fermentation is complete and transferred to oak barrels. The wine is then matured in French oak for a minimum of 12 months before bottling.
