Vineyard Notes: Most of the vineyards were planted in 2008 as field blends of local varieties like Malvar and Albillo. The old vines from the estate in this blend are Macabeo and Moscatel. All fruit is estate and farmed organically with elements of biodynamics.
Winemaking Notes: The white grapes are softly pressed into a combination of used oak barrels, large oak vats and stainless steel. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with wild yeast. Some of the wine goes through malo and some does not. There are no additions except a little SO2 to keep the wine stable for export.

Ripe orchard and citrus fruits on the nose, where a minerally nuance builds slowly and adds zesty lift. Silky and broad on the palate, showing very good clarity to the pear nectar, tangerine and honeysuckle flavors. A jolt of gingery spiciness adds final spicy cut to a long, well-delineated finish."
