Las Moradas are determined to show the world just how fantastic 100-year-old Garnacha vines can be.
Established in 1999, Las Moradas de San Martín was born of a desire to recover the centuries-old vineyards of Garnacha that had been cultivated there since the 12th century. Being in Pago de los Castillejos means they benefit from its climate and special granitic soils, producing wines with a lot of San Martín personality and a lively freshness.
The hilltops with their poor soils composed of sub-volcanic rock, granite and sand give the wines their essence: elegance, depth and length balanced with natural acidity. Currently working towards organic and biodynamic certification, their use of sulphites as a preservative is minimal. Winemaker Isabel Galindo believes the low yields, sandy soils and excellent acidity themselves act as natural preservatives, and she's all about making Garnacha the expressive and exciting star of the show.
