In many literature including the Roman one this area is described as one of the best vineyard in the region.
The Calderín del Obispo vineyard shows muddy Albariza soil in the lower part and purest Albariza Barajuela soil on the upper part.
This is where we grow our vines to produce Tintilla de Rota based wines: Tintilla, El Triángulo and Marismilla.
It’s one of the purest Albariza type of soil as it shows an high concentration of diatoms (seaweed residues) and a lamellae structure which allows vine roots to easily grow within.
As a result of it wines are deep and high concentrated showing limy and stony notes on the palate. Even if ready to drink, these wines are meant to be aged for a delighting evolution over the years.
It’s a red grape variety well known and widely used in the past within Jerez region.
Genetically similar to Graciano from Rioja region it has a fairly high acidity that makes it very suitable when growing in moderately hot climate like the Cadiz one.
Due to its low tannin content wines made from Tintilla undergo a much delicate vinification process in order to preserve elegance rather than power.
