Winemaking

The proportions are carefully blended each vintage to achieve an intriguing combination of the full-flavoured, intense Garnacha with the fuller-bodied spicy Syrah.

This wine was made in an unoaked style to showcase the purity of fruit and the characteristics of the high altitude terroir.
