The vines are more than 50 years old,dry-farmed, bush-trained and hand-harvested. The fermentation was carried out by wild yeasts. 500 kg. were whole cluster fermented and another 500kg. were fermented in open-top barrels, the remaining grapes were fermented in concrete. Aged in a mixture of used and new French Oak barrels for 12 months. The production for 2016 was approximately 1800 bottles
Grape Variety/Blend: Garnacha Tinta 100%, single vineyard
