The most celebrated Spanish variety; the grape of sun, exuberance, silky tannins and red fruit

Varieties

Garnacha Tinta

Vineyard

Garnacha Tinta grapes are from Finca Los Almendros, specifically from the plot known as “Las Terrazas”, an excellent example of how Barón de Ley has recovered traditional mountain grape growing in terraced banks.

Vinification and ageing

Following vinification in stainless steel vats, this wine is aged for 6 months in 10,000 litre French-oak foudres in the Monastery’s winery as a way to enhance the wine’s ageing capacity.
