100% Bobal

"The grapes come from ungrafted (pie franco in Spanish, or p. f.) and head-pruned Bobal vines from a vineyard that sits at 900-meters altitude. The vineyard was planted over 90 years ago and contains a field blend of different varieties, and some of those varieties (5% of Garnacha, some Moravia Agria, Marisancho, etc.) were added to the Bobal. It fermented together with indigenous yeasts in 4,500-liter oak vats and had a gentle vinification and longish maceration. The wine then matured in well-seasoned 600-liter French oak barrels. It's very lively, stony and mineral, with very good depth and incipient complexity, even if the wine is still very young." -Wine Advocate
