A cold winter with abundant rainfall delayed the shoot and the whole cycle of vegetation. A really hot summer caused high temperature differences between day and night. This helped to count on really well matured phenols.
Three plots, located in the South of Anguix, form the base of this wine: Camino Viejo, trained in Cordon-style, about fifty years old vines, and Morris and Otero, both trained in classical bush-style, both much older. All gets completed by selected grapes from other plots. The yields are low, on average there are 3.500 kg/ha.
