2017

This Garnacha comes from a vineyard planted in 1944, at 700 meters high. It ferments in 300 liter amphoras and stay on them for an year before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. A wine of stunning purity, soft, delicate, and incredibly floral. 700 bottles made.

" A varietal Garnacha from Riva de Tereso, the 2017 La Dula comes from a small 80-year-old plot planted in 1944, so production is extremely low. It's bottled unoaked and matured in amphorae to see what the pure grape delivers. It's fruit-driven and shows some ripeness from a warm and dry year. This tends to have very high acidity, so the grapes are picked late to achieve good ripeness. It fermented in tinaja (amphorae), where it's kept for a few months and then is bottled early. There are perfumed notes, and something herbal/wild that I like. The palate reveals fine-grained tannins and clean flavors. Only 670 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2018. "
