Winemaker Notes

100% old vine Garnacha, (70-100 years) sourced from the villages of Acered, Alarba and Castejón de Alarba from mountainside slate vineyards 3000 feet high. These slate vineyards give the wine a pronounced minerality and structure. Yields were limited to a maximum of 1 ton per acre.
