Winemaker’s Notes The terroir of this special vineyard owned by Candelario Hinojosa (Don Cande), is granite with quartz stones, with a slope exposure to the south. Bularco is such a unique place that it inspired me to create this wine. From this magnificent vineyard, with bush vines more than 50 years old with no irrigation, I decide to extract in the more gentle way to express the best of this terroir.  I obtained this by early harvesting with all the fresh fruit potential, in one unique lot and day, soft vertical press, cold fermentation with his native yeasts. After 1 month working over the fine lees the result of this is that the aromas, balance and mineralogy of this unique place is expressed in this fresh Rose of Cinsault.
