Tasting Notes

Winemakers Comments

Each individual vineyard and in some cases, varieties within the vineyards, were vinified seperately and matured in seperate parcels before being carefully selected for the final blend. Individual barrel selection was also used to bring complexity, balance and structure to the wine. Both older bush vine grenache and carinena as well as younger trellised syrah and cabernet are included in this blend. The older vines are all dry grown while the younger vines have access to irrigation which until recently was banned in Spain.
