Overview

2016 marks the first vintage of El Tamboril Tinto from 70+ year old vines of Garnacha located on a north-facing slope of pure granitic soils. Due to its elevation, El Tamboril is usually harvested well into October yet still struggles to reach a modest 12.5% alc/vol. The age of the vines, their elevation and the size of this parcel of Garnacha, just a scant half hectare, means that this will always be a limited cuvée in even the most clement vintages.
