‘As Ladieras’ is an expression from the local Aragonese dialect meaning ‘slopes’. The fruit for this wine is sourced from a single vineyard, on a steep north facing slope. Located at 850 metres above sea level on Precambrian slate soils, Fernando describes this site as his ‘Premier Cru’. The grapes are 100% whole bunch fermented and the wine is aged for 10 months in a combination of concrete and 500 litre old barrels. Lifted notes of red cherry and wild herbs such as bay, rosemary and lavender. Light on its feet, it deftly balances serious concentration with juicy acidity.
