The grapes for the wine come from a low-yielding vineyard geographically influenced by Europe's biggest desert the Bardenas Reales.
The arid clay soil mixed with the dry weather and varied night/day temperatures provide the grapes with a high concentration and perfect balance.
The grapes for this wine are macerated for 15 days. After pressing the wine is transferred back to concrete vats to age for around 9 months before bottling.
