The 2021 was defined by a winter of abundant rain that fomented the plant’s vegetative development. The organic management and the cultural techniques used in the vineyard allowed the vines to grow homogeneously. There was bud in April and no weather or plant health incidents were recorded. The absence of rainfall in summer, with cool temperatures, facilitated the optimum control of the vine’s health. A very strong output was obtained from the vine, with the resulting grapes being of high quality. The La Peña harvest took place on 13 October.

A wine that aims to reflect the maximum expression of these old vines, naturally respecting the terroir and landscape

Milsetentayseis La Peña is made with great care and the utmost attention to detail. The grape, from an extraordinary vineyard, is individually processed to achieve the maximum expression of this small corner of Fuentenebro. During the harvest, the grapes were harvested by hand and transported in twelve-kilogram boxes. At the winery, the bunches of these hundred-year-old vines were gently pressed to obtain the purest essence of each variety. The fermentation and ageing process was carried out over a seven-month period, in 600-litre French oak barrels. During this time, it remained in contact with its lees. To provide greater protection, the wine contains sulphites. It was bottled without being clarified or stabilised in May 2020.
