Description

Calatayud was a major viticultural hub at the beginning of the 20th century with over 40,000 hectares of vineyards. Today only 3,000 remain, and farmers continue to abandon the land in what is considered an impoverished region. This has left a treasure chest of old vineyards, it’s not uncommon to find 80+ year old vines, which are able to withstand the warm and dry climate as well as its infamous strong northerly El Cierzo wind. El Risco is a blend of Syrah with a dash of Garnacha and Bobal from old high altitude vineyards. Winemaking was very simple: the grapes are co-fermented, with a small proportion of whole bunches, and a short maceration. The resulting wine is spicy with wild berries and a smooth finish.
