Overview

Canta la Perdiz comes from a single vineyard located in the village of La Aguilera. This south-facing site is planted with ungrafted vines that date back well into the 19th century. As far as anyone can remember this site has been maintained by replacing vines that had died with cuttings from neighboring vines. This vineyard has a unique soil – pale, sandy and chalky limestone laid down in horizontal layers much like slate. Each vintage is labeled to reflect the growing conditions of the particular year – the blue, electric guitar for a cool vintage, the fiery piano for a warm one and a more composed eagle for a temperate vintage.
