“85% Monastrell and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon; made from the estate’s oldest monastrell vines, planted back to 1925. Inky ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes fresh black and blue fruits, incense, potpourri and five-spice powder. Stains the palate with intense boysenberry and cherry compote flavors, given spine and lift by a zesty mineral nuance. Densely packed yet lithe, finishing with outstanding thrust and smooth tannins that build slowly.” 93 Points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar


Bottling and elaborated on the property.

TRIGA is a new project of Rafael Cañizares and Jorge Ordoñez. The winery is located in the town of Pinoso. Triga vineyards are located in the southeast of the town of Salinas and northwest of Pinoso (Alicante), near the largest marble quarry in the world.

The grapes come from five vineyards, some planted in 1925. Four of them Monastrell. Located in the Sierra de Salinas and the Sierra mountains of Umbria and the Sima. The Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is in the Sierra de Salinas.

Back wineries owns 185 hectares in Alicante, under a handmade crop planted all glass system, natural (mostly organic) in rainfed.

Triga grows and develops under the Alicante DO, one of the most historic wine regions in Spain. Inhabited since 7 million years ago, has been producing wine almost since. Archaeologists have discovered remains of ancient Roman amphorae, packaging mud used to transport wine from antiquity. Because of the strength of the grape, climate and agriculture, this region has managed to survive notable pests such as Oidium and Phylloxera.

Fossilized limestone soil and the top layer filled with limestone. Located at an altitude of 700 -750 meters above the sea. There are 15.5 hectares of planted feet Franco.

The different altitudes within this small area make a microclimate that is predominantly continental, with Mediterranean climate is formed. Winters are cold, with snow on the highest peaks, the temperature can drop to -6 ° and increased to the 15-20 °. In summer daytime temperatures can be achieved up to 40 ° with a drastic decline in the night falling at least until the 10th. The rains are about one third of that in the rest of the Iberian peninsula. This results in an extraordinary balance of acidity and sugar.

Only the oldest vineyards are used for the production of Triga. The vines are carefully monitored at all stages and processes, pruning, flowering, fruit set, veraison and ripening vintage and only the best plots are selected. These vines have very low yields, about 1to / Ha.Each plot is harvested, prepared and aged separately.

Malolactic fermentation in barrel, 100% wine undergoes aged for 20 months in French oak.
The wine is lightly filtered. The famous Australian winemaker Chris Ringland co-leads the project in collaboration with Rafael Cañizares.
