About the Producer: 

"High altitude, dry farmed, old bush vine Garnacha made underground. The latest project from Fernando Mora (who received his MW last year) with his partner Mario Lopez. Following their usual methodology, they questioned everything, followed no rules nor recipes, simply listened to the grapes. Vineyards are at 550-700 meters on slate & limestone soils. Cuevas means “caves” - the traditional wines of the village were made in these underground caves." 

About the Region: 

"Campo de Borja lies between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain and the Ebro River valley in Aragon. The DO is divided in to three zones based on elevation, but is generally characterized by high plateaus and hills with limestone soils. The climate is continental, marked by very little rain and the cold, dry cierzo wind that blows down from the northwest. Garnacha dominates the region with approximately 5,000 hectares planted, the oldest dating back to 1890. More than 2,000 of the 5,000 hectares of Garnacha are between 30 and 50 years old." 

Vineyard: 

"Handpicked grapes from a dry farmed vineyards - Tormo, Cuesta Roya, Pozos de Mata - at 600-650 meters elevation with vines an average age of 40 years old. The soils are slate and limestone. As Ladieras means “from the slopes” in Fabla Aragonesa, a traditional almost extinct language from the region." 

Winemaking: 

"Fermentation with indigenous yeasts, 10% stem inclusion with two manual punchdowns per day in open fermentors (5000 Kg). Racking, malolactic and aging in a mic of concrete, eggs and barriques (Taransaud, Darnajou, Seguin Moreau)."
