Turó d’en Mota
This vintage symbolizes the challenge of creation: the authenticity of the landscape taken to the limit by a sweltering summer that finally gives way to just the right amount of rain that falls when it’s needed, at the end of August. A terroir wine moulded by nature’s implacable desires.
Great challenges forge great characters. That’s why 2003 is a historic vintage that has yielded a long-aged wine with an intense, vibrant character, marked by an indomitable spirit that gradually succumbs to balance, elegance and complexity… Because time calms, reassures and brings wisdom.

LOCATION AND GEOLOGY OF THE WINEYARD
- The vineyard of Turó d’en Mota has 0.97 ha with north and northeast exposure. Only in the extraordinary harvests, such as 2006, is a part of the vineyard of 0.55 ha with Southeast exposure
- Grounds of limestone texture (balance of sand, slime and clay) and very calcareous nature. They are treated with deep and well drained soils, with moderate water storage capacity.
- Soils very evolved due to the presence of a calcium horizon with important accumulations of carbonates in the form of nodules, that is, stones formed from concentrations of lime. They have an active limestone of 14%, which makes them extremely calcareous soils.
