It's the grandmother of Rioja Alavesa! Grown on the same plot since 1975, the vine roots are deep in a sandy rock subsoil terrain on less than 2 hectares. The cultivation of this vineyard is completed by horse and plow with each grape hand-picked directly off the single trellis vine and is chosen meticulously.
Its harvest is macerated using feet in a slow process allowing for a 'delicate, subtle,very fine and complex French Burgundian character maturation and is extremely elegant; a world class fine' as described by The Wine Advocate.
Aged for 18 months in the French Bordelaise barrel.
