La Mejorada Las Norias 2012
La Mejorada Las Norias comes from the vines of the lot called Las Norias and sincerely expresses
the influence of the siliceous soil and microclimate on the plant and, therefore, in this Tempranillo
with its mineral and characteristic freshness. The balance of the palate in this wine has its origin in
the subtle doses of strength and softness. It poses an extraordinary capacity of evolution, and over
the years develops notable fineness and aromatic complexity.
Soil and climate: Among the factors that constitute the terroir of La Mejorada are, firstly, the natural
conditions, soil and climate. The climate is what determines the cultivation of the vine. It is what
gives the grapes their harmonious maturity. In places like La Mejorada where the ripening is a slow
and random process, the soil acquires an importance where even mild variations, even in
neighbouring plots, translate to great differences in the quality and authenticity of the wines.
