"Made with organic grapes grown on granite soils in the little-known Sierra de Salamanca at 700 metres, this is a very rare Spanish white with incredible texture, focus and minerality, especially at only 12.5% alcohol. Salty, yeasty and beeswaxy, with a bracing, mouthwatering finish. No oak, just fruit intensity and texture."

Current vintage: 2017

Very early spring meant that the cycle started early. The summer was very hot and the grapes were harvested earlier than any year before. In the last week of August some storms allowed the plant to recover from the water stress and the grapes to complete ripening properly. Harvest in the second week of September.

The granite white Rufete is slightly less concentrated and unctuous than the slate, and slightly less sweet.

  • Harvest in 15 kg crates with selection of clusters in the vineyard.
  • Selection of grapes on the table.
  • Fermentation in steel tanks with indigenous yeasts.
  • Must and wine are always moved by gravity.
  • Ageing on lees.
