Murtia’s winemaker, Gabriel Martinez, creates exceptional wines from the vineyards of Canada del Cerro, which have soil rich in broken granite. The vines, planted in trellis and bush, are all over 25 years old. The grapes are hand harvested and fermentation is done in small tanks without crushing. 50% malolactic is used while in the cask. The wine spends 5 months in new French and American oak casks and is bottles unfined and unfiltered.
Jumilla is situated in southeastern Spain, in the northern part of the Murcia region. The region's soils tend to have a high pH, and low rainfall yields a concentrated yet balanced style of wine.
