Rafa Bernabé and his wife Olga set up the project in order to help protect local traditional viticulture, especially where there was a risk of some vineyards being sold to property speculators. The vineyardsare all dry grown, old bush vines with very small yields.
This is a blend of Moscatel & Merseguera, with whole bunch maceration and aged in Tinajas (amphora) for 6 months. No sulphites added. This has delicious sweet & tangy stone fruit notes with lots of salinity & some grippy tannin, too.
