Señorío de San Vicente is an exceptional and unique wine, because it is made entirely from the fruit of a particular vine - Tempranillo Peludo - which grows around the village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. 'Peludo' means 'hairy', and it is so-named because of the downy undersides of the leaves. Unlike most Tempranillo, this strain requires a long season to ripen its fruit, and produces unusually low yields. The wine comes from a single vineyard called La Canoca, which sits at close to 600m elevation at the foot of the Sierra Cantabria mountains. All these factors make producing it a risky business, and indeed in some years, the Eguren family has not produced any. However, the risk is worth it due to its unforgettable intensity, complexity and ageability. A sensational, must-try wine that is irresistible young but deserves a few years in the cellar.
