Cortijo de la Vieja is situated on the slopes of Sierra de Gador, with magnificent views of the Mulhacen, Spain’s highest mountain, and other peaks on the Sierra Nevada range. This is a little valley full of vineyards, where olive and almond trees also grow. The surrounding hills are covered in thyme, rosemary, and esparto grass, and dotted with pine, carob and wild olive trees.
Cortijo de la Vieja is in the municipal district of Alcolea, at 800 metres above sea level. Iniza’s estate comprises some 25 hectares of vineyards with a range of varieties: Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Garnacha and Tintorera for the red grapes, and Jaén, Vigiriega, Chardonnay and Macabeo making up the whites. Rainfall is scarce in the region and occurs mostly in autumn and the climate is dry in the summer, with hot days and cool nights. This temperature range makes the wines strongly aromatic, with concentrated colours and ripe tannins. It also keeps the vineyards optimally healthy. The soil is generally loamy, poor in organic matter, stony and full of slate in some places, and traditional organic farming techniques are carried out.
