Our white wine of the 80s was made entirely from Viura grapes. When the Chardonnay varietal was approved by DO, we decided to include a percentage to enhance the aromas, and later, in the 90s, we opted for a small percentage of muscatel which adds some tropical aromas that combine perfectly.
The Grenache and Tempranillo varietals form the basis of this rosé made by “bleeding”, when the must is left to macerate with the grape flesh and skins for about 6 hours. The must is then decanted off without pressing and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats.
Tempranillo-Garnacha Blend. Dark red color. Blackberry aroma. Firm structure. Plum and black fruit flavors. Soft finish.

"Still youthful, this 2007 has plenty of freshness in its red fruit flavors. It’s juicy with vibrant acidity, showing some development in the complex spicy notes on the finish. A blend of tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon and merlot, this comes from the clay and limestone soils of Olite."

The bodega changed the style of their Moscatel starting with the 2012 vintage. The 2012 vintage is now a late harvest wine. Made from petit grain moscatel.
