The Castillo de la Mota is the result of precision work in the vineyards with respect to the natural cycles of winemaking. Grapes are from vines between 25 and 40 years old, with a low yield of 2 kg per vine, this results in intensive aromas. Grapes are harvested at night to protect the grapes from oxidation. After pressing, the grapes are fermented for at least one month in stainless-steel tanks on their own lees (sur-lie). The entire production process is taken care of under a protective atmosphere to avoid additions of extra sulfites during the process.
