PRESS | 94 WA - 2014 vintage
“A high proportion of Garnacho from Viñaspre as well as other varieties in a field blend where
Tempranillo dominates. It fermented in an open-top, 2,000-kilogram oak vat with indigenous
yeasts and matured in 500-liter casks for 15 months. There is a little more rusticity here with
earthier aromas, a little more marked by the élevage. This was a vineyard marked by the
Garnacha, and they also used to include it in the Altos de Lanzaga blend in previous vintages.
With time, the oak becomes a little more obvious.” - Luis Gutierrez
