The decision to select only this variety represents the objective of prioritizing quality over profitability. A variety that disappeared due to its low production, ideal for aging in barrels and with which more fruity, elegant and smooth wines are obtained.

With this, Guillermo and his children managed to obtain a special wine, given that it is a unique farm, a unique grape variety and a unique winery.

Guillermo Eguren planted 18 hectares of Tempranillo Peludo at Finca de La Canoca, at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria, in an alkaline limestone clayey soil with a balanced proportion of organic matter.

The vines are planted using trellises and with a low yield of one kilo per vine.

Harvesting is manual, depositing the bunches in boxes. Then, upon arriving at the winery reception, a selection is made on the selection tables to keep the bunches in optimal health and maturation conditions.

The must is sent to French oak barrels where alcoholic fermentation takes place, and from there to new barrels (with 10% American oak) for malolactic fermentation. Its subsequent aging in barrels lasts for around 20 months, with racking every 4-5 months. Subsequently, it remains in the bottle for a year before its release on the market.

ABV: 14.5%
