Cencibal/Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah/Shiraz are the red vine planted here with Cencibal being the dominant by far. These examples tend to be oaky and well developed with concentrated fruit flavours. Airen, Chardonnay and Macebeo are the typical white cultivars.
The strong continental climate punishes any vines which are not suited to this semi arid landscape. The limestone bedrock retains water, giving a slim lifeline for well established vineyards. High sunlight hour exposure adds to the inhospitable environment. Altitude can help abate the heat with those above 700m above sea level faring better than those lower down the slopes.
