100% Listan Prieto (Mission)


Baja California, Spain

From the importer

Listan is produced from centenarian pie franco Misión (Listan Prieto) vines high in the mountains of Tecate, right on the California border. Because the grapes are dry-farmed, yields are very low here. The grapes are de stemmed and fermented without temperature control in 450 liter concrete tinajas. After fermentation, ½ of the cuvee goes to stainless steel vats, and the other goes to half to used barrels for 3 months. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration and just 10 ppm of added sulfur. A light ruby in the glass and at 12.5% abv, this is a supremely drinkable expression of the Mission grape with notes of floral, peppery red fruits, and refreshing briny acidity.
