The red 2017 Mestizaje is a blend of all the varieties they work with—in this case, 74% Bobal, 16% Garnacha and 10% Syrah from head-pruned and dry-farmed vines. Each plot and variety fermented separately with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and/or oak vats, and the élevage was in a mixture of oak vats and French barrique and lasted ten months. It felt very harmonious, subtle and elegant. I think there has been a change in the wine since they started removing the French grapes and using larger oak containers. It respects the Mediterranean character of the grapes and the place. 97,420 bottles were filled in November 2018.
