Tasting Notes Intense in the nose, this rex offers notes of powdered red berries, flowers and native herbs with a touch of  pepper. The structure is elegant and vibrant, salted notes and freshness.  Very pure and nicely  delineated.
Winemaker’s Notes The terroir of this special vineyard  owned by  Candelario Hinojosa (Don Cande), is granite with quartz stones, with a slope exposure to the south.  Bularco is such a unique place that it inspired me to create this wine. From this magnificient vineyard, with bush vines more than 50 years old with no irrigation, I decide to extract in the more gentle way to express the best of this terroir.  I obtained this by harvesting with all the fresh fruit potential, in one unique lot and day, and vinifying with very gentle extraction, with part of selected bunches and no pump remontage, only with pisagge and the use of is native yeasts during the fermentation. After 6 month working over the fine lees with no sulphur, in old barrels and concrete eggs,the result of this is that the aromas, balance and mineralogy of this unique place is expressed in every bottle of Koyle Don Cande.
