The single-vineyard 2017 La Danza del Viento Molino Quemado was produced with grapes from a vineyard in the zone known as El Canto de las Brujas in the village of San Martín de Valdeiglesias. The vines are located at 750 meters in altitude and are surrounded by almond and olive trees. The wine showcases the faintly saline and chalky character of the wines from the village, as the grapes are picked at good maturity but no more (it's 14% alcohol), keeping very good and healthy acidity for a warm year like 2017. It fermented with most of the stems (90%) and indigenous yeasts for 45 days and matured in used 500-liter French oak barrels for 15 months. I also see the more austere and tannic character of San Martín de Valdeiglesias here, with good ripeness from the warm and low yielding year, and it's a little earthier and has some rusticity. It's a little more balsamic and has a medicinal touch. 1,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2019.
