The building was based on two main principles: thermal isolation and the exploitation of gravity in order to make the wine racking easier. The first aim has been achieved by placing the oak barrels in the cool basement cellar of the building and also utilizing the air conditioning system during hottest seasons. The wine making area is north-facing with the purpose of assisting in the control of the high temperatures reached in this suntrap area. A second main aim tries to ensure the integrity of the grapes by avoiding any pump racking. The winery consists of three heights, in such a way that the grapes take up the transformation as they start going down through the various levels of the building. The vinification plant is placed on the first floor, the pressing area on the second one and the bottling plant on the third (basement cellar). Read less

This was very good. Cherries, light influx of dark berry fruits, herbal tones, spice - pepper, the aging has absorbed the oak entirely and this has mellowed elegantly. Medium, soft tannins with well balanced acidity. 92 points - drink now - Paul

Actually a blend of Monatrell, Cabernet and Granacha Tintorerra Rich fat nose of vanilla, cherry, wood and raspberries. Somewhat one dimensional at first. In the mouth though the wine really comes alive with the wood fading and fat raspberry flavors mixed with myriad spices. Really a fun wine to drink and though the wood is a bit heavy, I look forward to future vintages.3.5/5 [NR]

Blend of Monastrell, Cabernet and Grenacha Tinorerra Wild Strawberry, white pepper, sage and mahogany on the nose with hints of vanilla creamsicle. Sort of bland in the beginning, but slowly spreads its wings into a scrumptious mix of blueberries, strawberries and minerals. Interesting wine and fun to drink with richer heavier foods.
