Overview

Senal is a blend of 50 year old Garnacha Tintorera from the Simeta vineyard blended with 30 year old Monastrell grown nearby. These two gravelly and sany, clay limestone sites are situated at 700 meters above sea level near the village of Font de la Figuera in the Clariano sub-zone of Valencia. Sensal is Javi’s village wine and it is made with partial whole-cluster fruit (50% of the Tintorera and 20% of the Monastrell), ferments with indigenous yeasts in tank and neutral French oak barrels followed by aging in neutral French oak.
