III. VINEYARDS AND HARVEST: Located in the town of Grávalos, a small village in the Rioja mountain chains at 700 meters above sea level. The soils are calcareous and ferruginous clay. The climate is very rigorous with abundant frost in winter and hot summers. The temperature differences are up to 20 ° C between day and night.
The harvest is done manually and is very late. We harvest the Chardonnay grapes the second week of September and mid-October the Viura grapes.

V. TASTING: Bright straw yellow. Aromas of oak (roasted, smoked) and butter along with aromas of evolution of the variety. Tasty and full-bodied dry-bottom fine lees, dried fruit and toasted oak notes.
