It is the first mountain wine produced in Malaga since the end of the 19th century. Historic vineyards of Santo Pitar and Lagar de Rovira, located at an altitude of about 1000 m in the Natural Park of the Málaga Mountains. Two plots of 0.59 ha and 3.36 ha, planted in 1960 and 1902 respectively. Extremely steep topography, with slopes between 46 and 76%, only allows manual work using old techniques. Yields are very low (900 kg/ha) but the concentration of the berry is optimal.
Complex and ancient soils. Phyllites (slates) predominate. Shale, magma intrusions, quartz, limestone and sandstone are also present. This type of soil is easily eroded and very poor in organic matter (0.73%). The climate is subhumid and Mediterranean with an average temperature of 15.6°C. Harvested by hand in 9 kg crates, with the sole help of mules. Fermentation in new French oak barrels of 500 and 600 litres. Aged for 9 months and stored in bottles for four months before marketing.
