This wine is made from 100% Garnacha grapes sourced from old bush vines aged 50-70 years, planted on nutrient-poor granitic sandy soils. These high-altitude vineyards, located at 400-600 meters, experience significant temperature shifts with scorching days and frigid nights, enhancing the grapes' character. The winemaking process involves destemming the grapes and fermenting them with wild yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, preserving the authentic flavors of the terroir and the unique qualities of the Garnacha variety. The result is a wine that reflects the rugged landscape and meticulous craftsmanship of its origin.
