Description

With Señora de las Alturas there is a continuation of the series of wines focused on the terroir. Located in Fitero, this is the only Navarran village belonging to the Iberian mountains, just in the geological separation between the Sierra de Cameros and the Ebro valley. Señora de las Alturas is a wine from the Pontigos plot, one of the two plots with pre-phylloxera Grenache vines. This plot dates from 1900. Hand harvesting of the best bunches in 15 kg crates. Alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts in two 500 litre French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation and ageing for 12 months in two-year old 500 and 220 litre French oak barrels. Gentle clarification and filtration, without stabilization.
