These are dry farmed, mountain vineyards located at an altitude between 800 and 1,000 m. It is an extremely steep topography, with slopes of between 46 and 76% that requires manual labour using age-old viticulture techniques. In these conditions, the yields are very low (900- 1000 kg/ha), but the concentration of the berry is optimal for making quality wines.

Tasting Notes:

Pale pink colour, with delicate red fruit and flowers aromas. Dry with a balanced acidity and roundness due to the aging sur lees in the barrels. A combination of the complexity from ancient Pedro Ximenez vinyards and the light and elegant red aromas from, Petit verdot, Tempranillo and Shyraz.
A very suggestive and surprising wine. Served cold, it is ideal for aperitive, and pairing with fish, seafood, salmon, sushi, rice dishes and desserts.
