The vineyards are on average 70 years old and bush pruned. They are located in Mentrida which is a growing zone just south of Madrid. The plots come from two vineyards: La Serafina and El Cuartel
The vineyards are at a high altitude between 400 and 600 meters so that there is a large diurnal temperature shift.
Sandy soil full of quartz and felspar. The soil is a result of erosion from the granite formations in the Gredos mountains. The soil is extremely poor in nutrients.
Old vines bush pruned and worked by hand.
The grapes are destemmed and crushed then fermented in stainless steel tanks with temperature control. The wine undergoes malolactic then it is filtered, cold stabalized and bottled.
