Varieties: Garnacha from the Corzos, El Camino, Boquerón, La Coja and Poniente vineyards.
Granite-based soil with sandy loam texture (90-93% sand) and a pH level of 6.5. Bush-style planting
with 1,450 vines per hectare and a harvest yield of 2,220 kg/hectare. All viticulture is organic.
Vinification: Stalk removal and maceration were followed by fermentation using the grapes’ own
yeast, which included gentle pumping over. Malolactic fermentation took place in the tank without the
addition of bacteria and the wine underwent the ageing process in French oak barrels for a period of
ten months. The barrels used were of different size and age according to the characteristics of each
vineyard. Meticulous blending in tank before bottling without clarification or filtration.
Bottling: February 2015.
Serving temperature: 15-17 ºC
Tasting Notes: Fresh and aromatic, this wine truly represents the spirit of terroir of the Garnacha
from the Las Moradas estate. Attractive and stable cherry-red colour. This wine reveals typical
characteristics of the Garnacha variety; floral aromas alongside those of plum and low mountain scrub
against a mineral background typical of granite-based soil. The personality of the fruit is strong with
subtle hints of oak enhancing the overall experience. Satisfying on the palate with a lingering finish.
Other interesting data
The winery sits at a height of 870m above sea level, on the fringes of the Sierra de Gredos, in the
unique landscape of San Martín de Valdeiglesias to the south-east of Madrid. Twenty-one hectares of
vineyards surround the winery, and boast impressive old Garnacha vines. They sit in fine-gravel soil,
granite in origin, and face up to an austere climate, resulting in low grape yield.
