Vineyard and elaboration
The vineyard is located at an altitude of 20 meters above sea level, organically, without chemical or systemic treatments, and practicing viticulture that is not so common in Marco de Jerez. The soil is alvariza and the vines were planted in 2013.
Fermentation is carried out in oak barrels with their own yeasts and ageing is 12 months in 600-litre demi-muds.
For its stabilisation and refinement, it remains for another 5 months in stainless steel tanks.
The Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico winery was founded in 2002 to continue the family winemaking tradition of Alberto Orte (pioneer in recovering this variety) and Patrick Mata, its founders. Both families have been producing wine independently throughout Spain since the late 1800s.
Today, they produce wine in 18 different designations within the Iberian Peninsula.
Their main aim is to produce handcrafted wines that express the identity of their place of origin.
