Elaboration: Merlot comes from the plantation named Ronda La Vieja. The vineyard is 1,000 metres high located on the base of the Acinipo Roman Ruins. Garnacha comes from the plantation named Huerto de la Condesa, 600 metres above sea level. After a rigorous selection on the land and again in the winery, a special one-night maceration was undertaken. After that, grapes were pressed and decourbaged during two days before natural fermentation begins. Merlot fermentation was done in a stainless steel vat at 15º–16ºC and Garnacha at 18ºC – 19ºC in 500-litre barrels. Once alcoholic fermentation was finished, we decided not to do malolactic fermentation to boost freshness. This wine was raised on lees in a vat for five months.
