The Garcia family have had 22 hectares of land in the Contraviesa, the mountain range between Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean for generations. Half of the land is planted with organic figs and almonds and the other half with vines, some of which are up to 110 years old. At between 1150 and 1400 metres above sea level this may well be Europe’s highest vineyard and its proximity to the Mediterranean makes the climate especially unique.
This is their savoury and earthy red made from a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha. Red fruit aromas at first with a gravelly mineral character, mouth-filling full body and nice balancing acidity imbued by the high altitude of the vines.
