APPELATION: DO Tierra de Leon
VARIETALS: 100% Prieto Picudo
WINEMAKER: Noelia de Paz
ABOUT THE WINE: Vineyard 15+ year-old, dry farmed vineyards, non-cert. organic farming from a 20 ha plot in Gordoncillo, from the south of the DO León. Tierra de Leon is one of the windiest growing regions in Spain, and that affects the grapes through the development of thick skins. Alluvial clay soils allow for good water retention, although the region sees very little rain < 20 inch/year. Poor nutrient profile in the soil means little green harvesting is needed to naturally achieve 2-3 tons per acre.
TASTING NOTES: Visualy this wine is evidently from a bluer skinned grape with its so innk its kind of purple color. Electric watermelon and jasmine aromas explode out of the glass instantly. Beautiful citrus fruit and lantana blossoms
