Tasting Note:

“Saint Jacques is by far the most important wine I make.” Old-vine material from all over Bierzo. Mostly clay and sand-based sites, roughly 85% clay and 15% sand, fermented in traditional oak vats (ex-Vega Sicilia) with 80% whole bunches and kept on the skins for 2 months before pressing into neutral barrel for a further 10 months of aging. Mencia based but picked according to the natural field composition, therefore including smaller proportions of Alicante Bouschet, Trousseau, Palomino, and other wild grapes. One of Spain’s most exciting entrylevel wines. Named after the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage (aka Chemin de Saint Jacques) which passes through the Bierzo region.
