The oldest grapevines of Cabernet Sauvignon have grown at Dehesa del Carrizal since 1987. They were later joined by Syrah, Merlot, Tempranillo, Chardonnay and Petit Verdot.
Inspired by rocky soils and acid subsoils, the grapevines produce singular grapes after a long ripening process. Sometimes the harvest extends as late as November.
The vineyard, facing northwest and protected by the dry Mediterranean climate mountainside, is home to selected grapevines which are espalier trained.
Moreover, the trellis structure is carefully put up in two stages in order to facilitate movement around the rows and provide the clusters with exposure to the sun, which is necessary for an optimal ripeness.
Each grape patiently awaits its ripening. It grows on a selected vine until it is harvested.
