It is usually considered as a tough vineyard because of the combination of rocky, limy and clayey soil. Despite being a very stressfull soil for vines and a hard labor surface, wines produced here are concentrated and enphatic showing much more mineral hints than those produced at Balbaina estate.
Our farm is located on the highest point of El Corchuelo hill and includes 14 ha. of vineyards. Since the very beginning in 2002 we grow Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot, later on in 2009 2 ha. of Tintilla were added. Here is where we basically procude Garum, Samaruco and Petit Verdot.
Placed right in the middle of the sherry production land the farm offers a stunning ‘beautiful view’ on the surroundings from its 115 mts above sea level.
The farm has been brought back to wine production in 2002 when we planted 12,5ha. of vineyards from scratch and the countryside house dated 1844 was totally restored.
Presumably back in a day the El Corchuelo hill was an island located in-between Macharnudo and Añina areas and originated from a earth sinclinal distension. As a result of this movement a 100mts-high steep hill emerged made of a combination of purest Albariza intermingled with a marl-lime stone.
Known locally as Tocina, this exceptional soil can be found also in the nearby vineyard named as Tizón. It’s a unique terroir within Jerez vaste area and produces mineral and high concentrated quality wines.
