Bertrand Sourdais Hernando y Sourdais 'Antidoto' Tinto Fino 2015
Hormiga, or 'The Ant' is a 1.2 hectare monopole vineyard in the village of Quintanilla de tres Barios, north of San Esteban. It's gently sloping, facing south-east, with two metres of sand over deep clay, and yields a wine combining delicacy, power and control. The very old vines are still on a fine native red rootstock. Poplars at the bottom of the slope act as water control, protecting from over-vigour due to the rich clay soils. Organically farmed. Fermented 12 days and macerated 25 before 18 months' age in new and 1yo Darnajou barriques.
