Sourced from a single parcel of grapes called El Portillo which was planted by Moises’s grandfather 70 years ago. The plot is only 4.5 acres which typically yields less than one ton per acre. The name Maximo has a history for the family as it is the name of Rosa’s (wife of Moises) father, who both loves wine and helped the couple in the vineyards and with building the winery.
Winemaker Isaac Fernandez selected 100% new French Radoux Blend with medium plus toast for the first aging of the wine, after 12 months in oak the wine was racked to 100% brand new Radoux blend barrels for an additional 14 months of aging. The final blend was assembled from the very best 4 barrels and then bottled unfiltered.
