Navajuelos is a vineyard located in the municipality of Tobarra, one of DO Jumilla’s highest and coldest regions.
It is located on the side of the valley in sandy soils heavily strewn with stones, which gives these ungrafted vines the strength to face the dry summer months without suffering excessive hydric stress. A phenomenon which helps them to reach their perfect alcoholic and phenolic ripeness, which, in turn, gives rise to fresh, well-structured wines.
