Juanvi Viticultor Rubielos de Mora 2022

Juanvi is a small-scale, artisan winery established in 2008 in the town of Rubielos de Mora in the Sierra de Gúdar-Javalambre mountains at 1000m, surrounded by beautiful peaks and scenic vistas in every direction. The region has a strong continental climate, with a wide daily variation of temperatures from very cold at night to very hot during the day.

Juanvi Rubielos de Mora is made from the organically-farmed La Ermita de Los Mátires and La Loma vineyards near the village of Rubielos de Mora at 980m in the Teruel province, consisting of 4ha of garnacha and tempranillo, with the youngest vines planted in 2008 and the oldest being more than 90 years old. Soils are granitic, rocky, and shallow for garnacha (similar to Gredos) and calcareous clay soils for tempranillo. Harvest is typically in late October in this continental region.

Rubielos de Mora is a youthful, fruit-driven red wine with good ripeness but also exceptional freshness and acidity, and is both juicy and light at the same time. It’s a fresh, tasty, and easy-to-drink new-school Mediterranean wine. We simply couldn’t ask for more.

Vinification – Whole bunches are hand-harvested, then whole grapes are destemmed but not crushed, and undergo spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts with a short maceration and light pumping over (without breaking the skins) in stainless steel tanks of 2000 and 3000 liters. Following pressing, the wine rests in concrete tanks for five months.
