2020 Los Conejos Malditos Tempranillo Carbonico
The Bad Bunnies Are Back!
Los Conejos know good food when they see it, raiding the vineyard, "enjoying" the grapes and providing their own special method of pruning.
Cencibel, the local clone of Tempranillo, is uniquely suited to the harsh climate of the area with a smaller, more compact bunch size and thicker skin to withstand heavy winds. Bush & trellised vines (average of 50 years old) on limestone & clay soils at 750-800 meters. Spontaneous whole cluster fermentation in small stainless steel tanks after which the grapes are pressed in the classical method - the lighter free flow wine is released from the tank (La´grima) leaving the Corazo´n – pressed juice from the natural weight of the remaining grapes in the tank. A note about the name: The biggest threat to these old vines are not the extreme conditions they face each year - whipping winds, blistering heat, bitter cold, lack of rain - it is rabbits. Cute as they may be, the destruction they cause is massive - taking out entire hectares of vineyards each year.
