Wine Maker Notes
Made from selected grapes grown on very old vines, over 70 years’ old, planted in soils consisting of 50 cms of stone on top of a chalky-clay subsoil. These vines crown the heights overlooking the Pisuerga Valley, at an altitude of 790 metres, just a few kilometres outside Valladolid. Yields are only between 1,000 and 2,500 kg/hectare, with short pruning and the spreading of organic matter as fertiliser, or in a nutshell, we continue to cultivate the vines just the way our ancestors always did. These characteristics, combined with a harsh climate, big contrasts between daytime and night temperatures in summer and long, very cold winters with heavy spring frosts, enable our grapes to achieve a state of health and alcoholic and phenolic ripeness which are tantamount to perfect.
