Soil
Sloping slate soils with medium production potential.

Climate
Mediterranean, with slight continental characteristics. Cold winters, with most rainfall between October and February (average annual precipitation around 700 mm) and very hot summers.

Vinification
The grapes from the special plot, called Colonel’s vineyard were hand-picked in a highly ripe state. Inside small crates they were immediately transported to the wine cellar where they were rapidly cooled to 10°C of temperature. They were stripped and trodden on (bare feet) for 3 days. The alcoholic fermentation was carried out at a controlled temperature of 16°C in a small tank. The fermentation stopped with the addition of a 77% alc/vol wine spirit. Finally, the wine aged for 16 months in new French oak barrels.
