The Garnacha Tintorera for this wine is harvested from the highest altitude vineyards of the wineries holdings from vineyards 1100 meters or higher. These vineyards show exclusively chalky soils. The vineyards are dry-farmed and trained in the traditional, vaso, vase-like manner. Vines are between 25 and 50 years old. As a function of the altitude and soil, this wine is the most elegant expression from the winery.

The grapes see cool fermentations in stainless steel tanks, looking to maintain freshness of aroma. Once alcoholic fermentation is over the grapes are drained and pressed prior to racking back to the stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation.
