Rock Block 2015

45.00

The Rock Block is our original patch of Tempranillo, full of the limestone and volcanic rhyolite typical of the vineyard. Always the most fragrant parcel of Tempranillo, it is also the most supple and harmonious.

Rock Block (0.363Ha, 670-680m elevation) is our original patch of Tempranillo, planted in 2000 mainly to clone D8V12 with small amounts of requena, tinta roriz, D8V13 and CL770. The short east-facing rows span a reef of rhyolite, with limestone intermixed; it is among the rockiest patches in our vineyard, but has well-structured red clay-loam soil allowing good root penetration. The stand of yellow box trees below one corner of the block causes some devigoration, and contributes some eucalypt-derived aromatics to the wine; it is always the most fragrant parcel.
