Meaning literally “The Grapes of Wrath”, this wine is made from old-vine Garnacha sourced from four different sites near the village of El Real de San Vicente. True to Dani’s style, this is miles away from the typical concentrated style many people associate with the grape. Rather, it is lifted and elegant, with savoury yet fresh red fruit, spice, and dry, chalky tannins. An ambitious yet equally lovely wine from a very promising young winemaker.

The three parcels of vineyards are located near the village of El Real de San Vicente, planted on granite and sand soils at 750 to 800 metres above sea level. Vine age averages from 60 to 70 years. Climate is Mediterranean with continental influences and notable humidity
Viticulture is Biodynamic
Grapes are hand harvested. Whole clusters undergo natural yeast fermentation in open-top oak vats with gentle extraction. The wine is then aged for 10 months in used 2,000-litre and 3,000-litre French oak foudres. Wine not filtered or stabilized.
This has intensity and freshness in a light, silky frame, with exquisitely managed tannins and pure berry fruit.
