Peter Sisseck, the well known and acclaimed Danish winemaker, who is also winemaker for Hacienda Monasterio and PSI, has made this relatively small state the top address in the area. The winery was founded in 1995 and is located 30 km from Roa en the province of Burgos. It is an artisan winery with a very small production which allows that extra carefulness in the final quality of its products. Since 2001, biodynamic viticulture is being employed to achieve a healthier balance in the vineyards.
Tasting Notes: Fresh black fruit scented nose combined with nicely mineral, spice and balsamic notes. Harmonious and sumptuous palate, smooth textured, good volumen and depth, with a good fruit character and refined tannins.
Notes: A two hour decant is recommended. It will continue to develop over the next 3 – 4 years, and will drink nicely for a long time.
