Production: Sourced from a 4 ha. single plot called " Finca La Caseta" located in the town of Bonastre within the district of Baix Penedès and the province of Tarragona. At an altitude of 170 mt above the sea level and under a strong maritime influence, due to its proximity to the coast, just 6 km away, together with the clayish soil, poor in organic matter, and the low yield producing vines, gives the grapes the excellent characteristics from this vineyard, which results into a 100% Terroir expression wines.
The cultivation of the vineyards is done under sustainable viticulture. The harvest is done manually selecting 2500 kg of grapes which are left to dry spread out during 5 weeks in a glass house until they are fully dehydrated, afterwards they are pressed during 48 hours or until an extraction of 10% has been achieved, obtaining 250 litres of must with a high concentration of sugar and acidity. The fermentation takes place during 6 months in stainless steel vats. Because of his high concentration in sugar, the yeast dies out at 8.5º leaving 420 g/l of residual sugar. Only 250 bottles produced.
