More Info: Botas de Barro is a range of wines produced in Spanish regions with great winemaking traditions. Each bottle is a celebration of every pair of boots that have walked through the vineyards over generations, ensuring the preservation of the vines and therefore the quality of the grapes produced.

Almansa is one of Spain´s best kept secrets. Its indigenous grape varietal, Garnacha Tintorera, has the unique characteristic of coloured flesh in addition to its red coloured skin. As a result, the varietal produces wine of intense colour.

Located on the southern, flat plains, its semi-arid climate together with low fertile soils ensure the vines are low yielding. The area´s characteristics leads to the production of aromatic wines of deep colour with good tannic structure.

Garnacha grapes are grown from old vines with a minimum age of 30 years.

The grapes are harvested by hand before fermenting at 30ºC with 12 days of maceration. The wine then spends 4 months in 225l French oak barrel of which 15% spends in new cask.
