The Name of this wine refers to "The Pact" between Mother nature and the makers of this beautiful wine. This basically means that if the winemakers respect the land on which the grapes are grown Mother Nature will give them the best possible grapes with which to make their wine.
Vines have long been grown in the Sonsierra, owing to its ideal geographical and climate conditions. Protected by the Sierra del Toloño mountain range, which acts as a barrier against the Cantabrian rains, it is a very airy area thanks to the "cierzo” or chilling wind, which ventilates the grapes and gives them their freshness and an Atlantic character. The vineyards' southern orientation provides for mild temperatures all year, rainfall in the winter, and a favorable temperature difference between day and night, all of which contribute to optimal grape ripening year after year.
Tasting Note: This is so well made, firstly on the nose it shows dark berry intensity followed by chocolate and liquorice and spice. On the palate its bold but balanced with a super long finish(The hallmark of a really well made wine)
