«La Loma» was planted with the varieties Garnacha Blanca (which we use for our Miguel Merino Blanco), Garnacha Tinta and Tempranillo. And, according to the archives of the time, it was done on a Rupestris rootstock from Lot, which was a success due to the characteristics of the soil and its great affinity with Garnacha.
The harvest, by hand and in small boxes, was 4,700 kgs (which means a yield of 3,350 kgs / ha). Cold maceration for 3 days, before beginning the fermentation, which took place in a small stainless steel tank, at controlled temperature. The pumping regimen varied depending on the time of fermentation, always seeking to respect the subtlety of this vineyard.
