About

Modest and passionate about his vineyards, Abel and his wife Maite have been making understated wines in San Vicente since 1988. Lying in the shadow of the Sierra Cantabria, Abel has vineyards in the finest parts of the Alavesa. His knowledge and understanding of the soils is enthralling and to taste in his cellar can be an education on the effects different soils have in different years. He wants only to express the fruit and the soil and unlike many Riojans, he leaves it more or less at that. He does not want to stamp the wines with any particular style or mark of his own other than his respect for the very natural quality of the grapes and the magical places that they were grown. Viticulture- Calcareous clay soils, grapes from different plots. From old vines, over 30 years, grown in San Vicente de La Sonsierra. Winemaking- Temperature controlled fermentation in new French Oak barrels and 4 1/2 months on its fine lees. Oak Treatment- Time: 5 Months; Type: French; % oaked: 100; % new oak: 100
