General information

The grapes come from vines planted at an altitude of 550 meters, at the foot of the Alce mountain, municipality of Alfaro, in La Rioja Baja.
Its soils are mainly calcareous, clay-ferrous and with much presence of boulders.

The climate is Mediterranean, with an influence from the Atlantic, with a great difference in temperature between winter and summer, which allows the grapes to ripen excellently.

The harvest is carried out manually, taking advantage of the hours of low solar intensity to keep the grapes fresh.
Once in the winery, the grapes are de-stemmed and go through a selection process before carrying out a maceration at low temperature for 23 days to extract all the aromas.

Tasting Notes La montesa

The vintage was characterized by high summer temperatures. After a mild winter and with little rainfall, spring began with enough rainfall, which favored the vegetative growth of the vine. During the summer very high temperatures and absence of precipitation were suffered, obtaining a great sanitary condition of the vineyard. As a general result, we have a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of matter. This year is characterized by a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed from your youth.
