• WINE NAME: SOL
Tardana is one of those Spanish varietals that fell out of favor, probably due to the fact that it riskily ripens late, and as a result is nearly extinct in the region. Left on the vine, tardana achieves ripeness after most red varietals and many solar hours per year. The families at Gratias are sure to elaborate Sol so that the this unique varietal, the microclimates of the plots, and the riparian soils in which the vines grow are expressed in the glass: small tank fermentation at low temp followed by partial lees-aging in tinaja are key.
