A vibrant and juicy, unoaked red wine, showing great purity and the typicity of high-altitude Tempranillo, with expressive and well-defined aromas of red berries, rosemary and a touch of liquorice. Bright ruby red colour. Fresh and with an excellent persistence on the palate, with round texture and a satisfyingly dry finish. Very versatile, medium-bodied food wine, excellent with tapas, grilled meat and pasta. ~winery notes
Produced from our own, organically farmed vineyards in Ucls (Castile, Spain). Managed as an integrated ecosystem and studded with centenary oak trees. The continental climate with sunny days and cool nights allow us to achieve intense fruit and excellent varietal definition, while retaining remarkable freshness. Grapes are picked at night or in the early morning hours and shipped quickly to our state-of- the-art winery for destalking, light crushing and fermentation under temperature control in stainless steel. Maceration lasts for 8-10 days to achieve a perfectly balanced style without excessive extraction. No oak is used to achieve pure expression of high-altitude tempranillo.
The Mesta was a powerful alliance of shepherds in medieval Castile, who controlled the caadas: traditional rights-of-way for migrating sheep. to this day, the caadas are protected from being blocked or built upon. Our vineyards are nestled deep in the land of The Mesta, and are still passed over by flocks on their annual migration a reminder of ancient rights, and a cultural cue for continued co-existence with nature. Through sustainable viticulture and respectful winemaking, we produce wines of great purity, reflecting the unique personality of our land and grape varieties.
