Biodynamically farmed (although not certified), sulphur free (or natural, if you prefer) limited production wine from a 0.56-hectare parcel planted in 1979. It’s very fruity in the mouth, flavours of plum and liquorice, compact tannins and a bright, refreshing finish.
Grapes: 100% Tempranillo
For two generations Abel Mendoza's family has been farming vineyards in Rioja which are scattered throughout the commune of San Vicente de la Sonsierra (towards the border of Rioja Alta and Alavesa). More than anything in the world, Abel cares for his vineyards, each plot cared for independently and harvest done entirely by hand. The grapes planted are all indigenous including malvasia (a variety widely planted in Rioja in the 18th century), Viura, Tempranillo and Graciano.
