Tech Sheet:

PRODUCER: The Gabriel Martinez Project started from the enthusiasm he has for his homeland, Jumilla, and his recognized expertise in the oenology field.

Gabriel bought vineyards from the area, based on his experience and knowledge. High vineyards and shady areas to get fruit and fresh wines. For the Monastrell he looked for vineyards with an average age of 50 years and with a large size as they are the basis of his project. But for Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon he preferred young vineyards
Gabriel elaborates real modern, fruity and elegant wines thanks to the selection of old vineyards and plots.
