Turó d’en Mota
Turó d’en Mota 2006 expresses the generosity of a harvest that delivered ideal conditions for producing wines of great intensity and balance, with the capacity to gain finesse and refinement after more than eleven years sheltered in the darkness of our cellars. A harmonious ode to nature, with highly expressive fruits and unprecedented freshness.
The character of the Mediterranean region is strongly expressed, with moderate but irregular rains over the wine year. Precision viticulture work plays a key role in enabling the vineyards to withstand the extreme cold of the winter and high summer temperatures.

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.
- Organic matter of 1.5% (very low) and soil pH of 8.5 (very basic).
