Vineyard

Field blends of old vines planted in the village of ‘La Aguilera’ at 860 metres over red clay and limestone soils in the Burgos province. Vines are over 50 years old, North facing sites in the hillsides overlooking the Gromejón Valley; this cooler exposition helps compensate the heat of the year. Jorge acquired these plots over the last decade while working at Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro, before departing in 2013 to focus full-time on his own project.

Viticulture 

Viticulture is certified organic. No herbicides, pesticides nor synthetic products are used. The vineyards are not irrigated and are worked as little as possible to encourage the growth of natural cover crops.

Vinemaking

Grapes are hand harvested, foot trodden and co-fermented together without destemming. Fermentation takes place with native yeast during the next 8-9 following months after harvest, and the wine undergoes malolactic and ageing in old French barrels for 19 months. The wine sees no fining, filtration or clarification.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of blackberry, blueberry and dark cherry, vanilla, sweet spice and chalky tannin. A fresher style of Ribera del Duero that aims for elegance over extraction.
