The purpose of this wine is to express in a bottle the essence of the Sierra de Algairén area, cradle of the Garnacha grape: a very peculiar area, with a singular terroir and altitudes between 500 and 800 meters.
The Garnacha blanca grape was chosen for this wine because of its ancestral origin, as it is a very widespread grape in the area, although over the years it was no longer cultivated and was replaced by other more productive varieties.
Currently, due to its potential, it has been recovered and planted again in the Cariñena area.

These are carried out separately: 75% of the must ferments in stainless steel, remaining on its lees for 4 months; and the other 25% of the wine remains for 4 months in new 500-liter barrels.
The final blend is made a few days before the beginning of spring.
Intense white-fleshed fruits such as peach and mango stand out on the palate, accompanied by flowers, dried herbs and a mineral background due to the terroir of deep, chalky, clay soils.
Its flavor is surprising as it invites us to travel to other wine regions of the world. It is a very enveloping wine, with a persistent finish that allows us to accompany meals much better.
