Guerinda La Cruzica

It isn’t easy to cultivate Tempranillo grapes in the dry slopes of this area. Despite the non-extreme temperatures during summer, low rainfall makes the vines a little stressed by the end of the ripening period causing them to loose leaves and accelerating acid degradation.

We very much love these loose grape bunches with thick and flavourful skins. And we also love the ravishing colour of the must just as the bunches are being pressed. What we like the most about our Tempranillo, though, is that although we have tried making it to achieve a specific style, its personality always comes out above our desires.
