The 2021 Rubus Quercus (Juanvi Quercus in the US) is a blend of approximately 70% Garnacha and 30% Miguel del Arco from 40- to 50-year-old vines at 800 to 960 meters in altitude. 2021 was cooler, healthy but low yielding because of a snowstorm in January and frost in April. It fermented with some 10% full clusters and indigenous yeasts with a long maceration of four weeks and matured in second and third used 500-liter oak barrels for six months. It has a bright ruby color and a perfumed and floral nose and is elegant, very tasty, harmonious and nuanced. It's spicy and fresh, with integrated oak, and it's more soil- than fruit-driven. It's ripe with 14.4% alcohol and good freshness. 6,600 bottles were filled in two lots, in May and December 2022.

Product Description:

Whole bunches are hand-harvested, then whole grapes are destemmed but not crushed, and grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts with a three-week maceration and light punch-downs (without breaking the skins) for the delicate extraction of tannins and color in stainless steel tanks of 2000 and 3000 liters. Following pressing, the wine rests for six months in used two and three-year-old 400L French oak barrels. After aging in barrels, it is transferred to concrete tanks where it ages for a further three months. Juanvi wines are bottled without stabilization, clarification, or filtration.
