The biggest threat to these old vines are not the extreme conditions they face each year - whipping winds, blistering heat, bitter cold, lack of rain - it is rabbits. Cute as they may be, the destruction they cause is massive - taking out entire hectares of vineyards each year. Aged in amphora, this is bright, fresh, moreish Tempranillo.
