The grapes are sourced from the Bellavista vineyard (0.5 ha), near the village of La Aguilera. The vines average 80 years of age and are planted on pebbly soil with a planting density of 2,500 vines/ha. The altitude of the vineyards is 906 metres above sea level.
Viticulture is organic and sustainable. The vines are gobelet-trained and dryfarmed.
Whole bunches are hand-picked and foot-trodden. The must is fermented in open top oak barriques with minimal punching down. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques, and wine is then is matured for 12 months in 225-litre French oak barriques. Finally it is bottled unfined, unfiltered and with minimal additions of sulphur.
The nose displays elegant aromas of cedar, aromatic herbs and ripe dark fruits. It shows tension in the mouth due to its vibrant acidity and tannic structure, as well as a smooth balance provided by its intense flavour and lingering finish.
