Winemaker's Notes

Wine Maker Notes - In collobaration with Gerardo Mendez of Do Ferreiro we decided to produced a wine with some very old plantings of Jaén that were interspersed in between old vines of Tempranillo.

Tasting Notes - Rich, layered mineral notes combine with wild herbs and on the palate the wine has heft and density with a striking minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"($20; 100% old-vine jaen, which is local dialect for the palomino variety; no oak) Pale yellow. Intensely spicy aromas of dried pear and white peach, with a strong undercurrent of minerals. Dry and nervy, with expanding citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a jolt of white pepper. The spiciness builds on the finish, which features a salty mineral tone and very good juicy length. Really interesting wine, but there isn't a lot of it."
