‘Neblerío’ is grown on high-altitude vineyards, on red limestone, known locally as “Los Rojillos”. The influence of the nearby Sierra Nevada mountain range and “Neblerío” the name the local grape growers give to an atmospheric morning mist which provides the east facing vines with welcome moisture, before being dispersed by the rising sun and winds from the mountains, ensures the grapes ripen very slowly, helping to a create an elegant wine with soft, balanced tannins.
Winemaker Harry Hunt opted for both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in stainless steel tanks and was then given just 3 months in small, 4-year-old French oak barrels to aide its structure and to allow its unique, high altitude Tempranillo characteristics to shine through.
This is a medium bodied wine with flavours of ripe blackberries, a dash of strawberry and a hint of juniper and walnut.
