Winemaker’s Notes The grapes were picked in extremely small, selected parcels (one bottle per plant) from high density vines in the Los Lingues Vineyards, coming from low fertility volcanic soils, where the roots can bring the minerality and freshness of the rocks. The vineyards are carefully pruned, with stringent canopy management, almost no irrigation, to express the origin as much as possible.  At optimum ripeness, the grapes are hand-picked and brought to the cellar in 12 kgs cases for careful sorting.  Vinification is conducted in small tanks to get the best extraction of aromas, flavors and silky tannins.  After fermentation, the Tempranillo and Mourvedre are aged in French oak barrels and concrete eggs, with no filtration.
