Vineyard

The vineyards are located in the Northwest Spain’s region of Galicia, on terraces along the steep slopes of the rivers Sil and Bibei at between 550 and 750 metres above sea level. Soils consist of decomposed granite, schist and sand. The climate is continental, although proximity to the Atlantic Ocean makes this area more humid and rainy than most of Spain, with around 800 mm of rain falling each year. 

Viniticulture 

The wines undergo long gentle maceration and are fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and whole bunches at low temperatures to favour a gentle extraction of colour and phenolics. They are then aged in old barrels, mainly 500l demi-muids, and are bottled unfined, unfiltered and with the addition of low quantities of sulphur

Tasting Notes

Racy, red-fruit nose, more restrained than their other reds, with lovely peppery notes and sour cherry fruit. Low tannin, but plenty of acid
