A 100% Tempranillo Blanco from vineyards in Albelda de Iregua and Montes de Clavijo, at an elevation of over 700 metres, resulting in a fresh, unctuous and perfectly ripe wine that is both lively and pleasant to drink.
DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN:
Selection of vineyards in the VALLE DEL IREGUA, LADERAS DEL MONCALVILLO and MONTES DE CLAVIJO.
Between 550 and 700 metres above sea level.
Mixture of ferrous clay with calcareous clay and a sandy component of degradation on the surface. The mixture lends agility, depth and great volume on the palate.
100% Tempranillo blanco.
A fresh vintage, budbreak came a week early, the first part of the summer with abundant rainfall, followed by an absence of rain in the second part, which meant the plant's vegetative cycle was very balanced and healthy. During ripening, the climate was favourable with a contrast in temperature between day and night, which produced optimum ripeness in aroma and flavour.
4 months on fermentation lees, regular riddling twice a week.
“Enticingly priced, this impressive blend of mostly Tempranillo Blanco would confound most people in a blind tasting. Grown at 800 metres, it's zesty and crunchy, yet exotic at the same time"
