Vineyards are located at Valle de Pedernal at 1,300 m. a. s. l., at a different, virgin and wild terroir. Daily average temperatures during grape ripening range from 15 to 20°C, a temperature range of 20°C, annual rainfalls are 150 mm, apart from winter snowfall. Water for irrigation come from snowmelt and rains and the system used is drip irrigation. Soils are alluvial made up by gravel of different sizes (angular shape) and soil composition (mainly calcareous stones and “Pedernal” silex, among others) combined with layers of fine materials such as sand, silt and clay. Soils are poor, with a low content of organic matter but with excellent water retention and distribution. They show good drainage and low ground compaction.

Destemmed grapes were sent to tanks to conduct cold pre-fermentation maceration at 10ºC for 72 hours. Fermentation began after the inoculation of selected yeasts. At the beginning of alcoholic fermentation there were temperature peaks of about 27°C and 3 delestages were completed. Next, fermentation temperature was kept between 23 and 24°C and 2 pump-overs were carried out daily. Finally, post-fermentation maceration was conducted, with a total maceration period of up to 29 days approximately. After that, the wine was transferred and kept in oak barrels for 12 months. Grapes were hand-harvested during the first week of April and they were placed in boxes. During the period of time between grape ripening and grape harvest, January to April, average maximum temperatures were around 22 °C, slightly lower than average normal temperatures, while average minimum temperatures were around 9°C, slightly higher than average normal temperatures, with a temperature range of about 13º C lower than usual temperatures. Rainfalls were between 250 and 300 mm per year, a bit higher than normal.
