Fuentes del Silencio

Harvested by hand in 15-kg boxes. Manual selection in the vineyard. Aged in large French-oak barrels for 9 months.

Tasting Note

La Gándara is the “pampered girl” of Fuentes del Silencio. The special characteristics and small production that we obtain from this vineyard allow us to take our vinification philosophy of experimentation and non-intervention to its fullest expression. La Gándara is a wine that faithfully reflects its surroundings. Aromatically, we find wild flowers and red fruits, in the mouth it is fresh, balsamic and delicate.
