Soils
Single Vineyard called “Casas de los aperos” Ruby color- limestone soil located in the slope of the mountain highly sensitive to erosion. Soils very rich in iron which changes the limestone colour into a rubi-color, this effect is known as rubification. These soils are deeper and more porous than the dolomitas ones, thus allowing larger storage of water. These soils provide full-bodied and estructure wines. Vineyards aged 17 years old in dry agriculture.
Single Vineyard called “La parada”. 650 meters over sea level. Limestones and sandy soils (ochre rendzina). They are very poor soils due to rich presence of limestone. However, iron offsets the effect of limestone and the good levels of magnesium allow good grape ripening and keep also good acidity levels (thanks to potassium). The fresh balance of this monastrell is due to this soil. Bush vines planted in 1988 in dry agriculture.
Single vineyard called “Casa Tortosa” at 650 meters. Soils from aluvional origen with a 30% clay. These soils are very deep allowing a good water reserve. Vineyards aged 16 years old in dry agriculture.

Vinification
The harvest was manual. Each variety was vinified separately and selected. After a careful selection of the grapes, a cold maceration pre-fermentation started at 2ºC for 3 days to extract more the aromas, the must was fermenting in inox deposits at controlled temperature of 26ºC . Post fermentative maceration took 23 days for Marselán and 25 days for Monastrell working with the lees and soft battonages. Aged in new French oak and 1st and 2nd year oak barrels of 225L for the Marselan and 500L for the Monastrell during 15 months.

Vintage 2015
In winter there were relatively low temperatures with occasional snowfall and lots rain. The average temperature of the spring was somewhat higher than average, but it was a rainy spring. The summer was also quite rainy but overall was not very warm and well below the average of recent years. Very cool nights. It was a perfect climatological year with rains well distributed and not very high temperatures.
The lower average temperature and rainfall caused a delay in the sprouting. Copper and sulfur treatments were performed.
