Joan Ramon’s most serious white wine.
From 80+ year old bush vines planted on limestone just outside the winery door. The wine is named for the vineyard it comes from which is co planted with Sumol Blanc, Valenciata, Muscat, Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Macabeau and Parallada (which makes up the majority of the blend). Fruit is picked together before being foot stomped and whole cluster pressed into clay amphoras, cement tanks and old oak barrels where it ferments and ages on lees.
