About the wine
Produced from 5 native Valencian grape varieties grown at high altitude (900 to 1,000 m): Marisancho, Macabeo, Malvasia, Merseguera & Moscatel. Jose Luís Murciano has engaged all his village vine growers to follow his meticulous vineyard work to rescue the Marisancho grape variety; previously only used in blends with red Bobal grape. More than 40 local growers follow Jose Luis instructions in order to harvest around 3,000 kg. Processes follow organic practices and the biodynamic calendar. Hand harvested between mid August & early September in small 10kg crates, followed by 3 days of cold soak maceration at 2 degrees celcius. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeast. 50% of the wine is vinified in temperature control inox vats. 50% goes to 500L 3rd year French oak barrels for fermentation.
