Case of 6 bottles.
From a single organic vineyard in Tubilla del Lago, planted over 100 years ago, at +900m on clay/calcareous soils, as well as from the Gumiel del Mercado vineyard (at 930m), with similar soils, and managed using biodynamic methods. The 2019 vintage had more of an Atlantic influence.
100% Tinto Fino - the juice is kept on the skins for ~12 days. After fermentation, using natural yeasts, the wine ages for 14 months in a 2300 litre French oak cask, with refining in concrete tanks. Not cold stabilized. ~16,400 bottles produced.
