This is 75% Albillo Real with 34 days of skin contact blended with 25% Chasselas with three weeks’ skin contact. Salty, waxy and herbaceous, this is full of ripe pear fruit and a touch of grippy tannic structure. There's an ample hit of minerality and an edge of green almond bitterness on the finish.

Orly Lumbreras, whose vineyards can be found high in the slopes of the Sierra de Gredos, is a sound engineer by training, and his appreciation for harmony is apparent as soon as you taste his wines.
As invaluable as a winemaker’s technique is to the success of a wine, so is the land from which the grapes come. In the case of the Sierra de Gredos the land is first, high in altitude, and second, very poor. In fact, it is predominantly decomposed granite and sand, with little fertile topsoil to be found, forcing the grapes to draw in every last bit of nutrition they can find—and a huge amount of that cool granitic minerality as well.
