Product Description
Not surprising Las Gravas comes from a profoundly rocky, single vineyard of the same name. You'd also be hard pressed to call it soil since before you can get to anything resembling dirt you have to go through a foot of stones. Here Jose Maia and his father planted Monastrell, Garnacha and Syrah, each of which contribute to the final blend of Las Gravas. While the other cuvées from the estate show the unique expression of site and variety, Las Gravas is a broader lesson in terroir and the varieties that thrive here. Las Gravas is harvested by hand and fermented in underground stone tanks with manual pigeage. Once primary fermentation is complete the wine is aged in 500 liter French oak barrels for 18 months. In most vintages only 20% of the barrels are new.
