Vineyard and elaboration
The vineyards are located in Jarque at 600 - 700 metres above sea level with an average slope of 15% - 20% and are more than 50 years old.
It is a traditional goblet-trained vineyard grown organically on clay, calcareous and bluish slate soils. The grapes are harvested manually.
Regarding vinification, 20% of the grapes ferment with whole bunches and the treading is done manually.
In 2008 Fernando Mora started making wine at home. Thus began one of the most interesting and original wine projects in Spain.
The winery is a house with a 200 year old underground cave (3 levels) that enables them to work by gravity and delicately handle the grapes, as well as benefiting from perfect temperature and humidity conditions for ageing.
After a major remodelling, it now lets them process around 70,000 kilos of grapes and age almost 50,000 litres of wine in various containers: concrete, oak foudres and barrels of different sizes up to 600 litres (demi-muid).
Although wines have been aged in this winery since 2017, 2019 is the first vintage that has been made entirely in the new winery and in which they have been able to vinify all the plots separately. There are 45 wines in total with which they will make different blends.
