Pure, “minimal intervention” wines at the forefront of Spain’s slow move towards more elegant, terroir driven styles from Alicante, South-East Spain where the climate is hot, humid and Mediterranean near the coast becoming drier and more continental further inland. Famous for its sweet Moscatels (fortified) and Fondillón (unfortified aged rancio style, semi-sweet Monastrell), they are now making very interesting dry wines from local grape varieties. 

This is a coastal region with sandy dunes formed by sea fossils. This high sandy content (80%) means that these vineyards survived the invasion of phylloxera and remained on traditional roots. 

The vines are 50-70 yr old dry-grown bush vine, viticulture is organic (no herbicides or manmade products). Grapes are hand harvested. Fermentation with wild yeasts takes place at 15 deg in amphorae of 450l, 300l & 250l. After a natural cold stabilization over December, January & February the wine ages a further six months in amphora without batonnage or additions of SO2. The wine is botted without fining or filtration.
