A blend of mostly Mencia from a single, 1.2 hectare vineyard comprised of granite, sand and slate. These are Pedro's oldest vines. Hand harvested, fermented with native yeasts, 40% whole-cluster in large used oak barrels. Racked into used Burgundy barrels where it ages for 14 months prior to bottling, un-fined and unfiltered.
An effusive nose of ripe red cherry, blackberry, kirsch, dried thyme and white pepper. Medium-bodied but quite dense on the palate where the ripe fruit is exquisitely cut by a core of rocky minerals and focused acidity. One of my top Spanish wines.
