In 2013, a freak hailstorm struck the Contino estate and the golf ball sized hailstones diminished the crop by an incredible 90%. Winemaker Jesus Madrazo decided to persevere with whatever healthy fruit was left and, after rigorous berry-by-berry sorting, just 17 barrels (barricas) of wine were produced.

What was salvaged yielded an excellent wine and is a testament to the meticulous attention to detail and winemaking skill of Madrazo. It is a rich, layered and effortlessly balanced blend of 80% Tempranillo, 13% Graciano and 7% Garnacha aged for just shy of two years in French and American oak.
