Always on the hunt for the exciting, we’ve cultivated a stranger (Extraño) in our vineyards, delicately taming Tempranillo’s temperamental streak by integrating fellow Spanish varieties Grenache and Carignan.
The grapes are hand-picked, destemmed and the berries are sorted into open top wooden tanks (foudres). Punchdowns take place daily and the grapes were basket pressed after fermentation. The wine was matured in French and American oak barrels (of which 20% was in new barrels) for 24 months.
