Demencia 2007

2007 summer wasn’t extremely hot but at the end of it, we had a warm weather that gave us a very nice and healthy maduration with a wonderful grape. We monitorored ripening sampling and analyzing, of course, but we also consider important the tasting of the grapes. Checking them, touching them, tasting them, sensing them…

The whole production was done by hand, evoking the traditions of the area. We implemented what we heard from our elders, without ever forgetting to perform a careful and exclusive selection of the raw materials, and applying the technical knowledge that our seniors only knew by experience.

8 terroir selected in the environs of Valtuille, called Matadeprada, VAldelaliebre, Valdemanteiga, Villegas, looking for grounds of frank composition with sandy tendency, direction to slope east slight, and a cepaje of high age.
