100% Viognier, from 80-year-old vines cultivated using biodynamic methods and planted on the terroir of Conca de Barbera, at high altitude, close to the sea, in the Tarragona region. The grapes are harvested by hand. Vinification: fermentation with indigenous yeasts, and a light skin maceration for one week – not yet enough to make this an orange wine. Matured in French oak barrels that have seen several wines for a period of six months. Neither fined nor filtered, and zero added sulphur.
