“The red 2017 Mestizaje is a blend of all the varieties they work with—in this case, 74% Bobal, 16% Garnacha and 10% Syrah from head-pruned and dry-farmed vines. Each plot and variety fermented separately with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and/or oak vats, and the e´levage was in a mixture of oak vats and French barrique and lasted ten months. It felt very harmonious, subtle and elegant. I think there has been a change in the wine since they started removing the French grapes and using larger oak containers. It respects the Mediterranean character of the grapes and the place.” - Luis Gutierrez
