Characteristics of El Puño Viognier
Manda Huevos is a white wine produced by the El Escocés Volante winery. It is a varietal Viognier. The fact that it is made from this variety does not allow this wine to be classified under Calatayud.
The Viognier grapes come from vineyards located at an altitude of 950 metres, planted on alluvial clay-limestone soils with stones. In this geographical context, the grapes bear an extreme continental climate with very low night temperatures which facilitates a proper ripening of the grapes.
The development of Manda Huevos begins with a manual harvest during the first days of October. Once in the winery, El Puño Viognier 2011 undergoes a maceration of 18 hours in French oak barrels and is then aged in the same oak over 8 months in its lees.
El Escocés Volante, Norrel Robertson, has over 8 years experimenting with Garnacha in Aragon and also produces wines in the cellars of San Gregorio and San Isidro near Calatayud.

Winery El Escocés Volante
The history and legendary Camino de Santiago to Navarra, with the resulting French and Central European cultural influence in the area, influenced in the Middle Ages the tradition of unique wines, centred on the use of the Garnacha Tinta grape variety. The modernisation of wineries, the careful choice of the vineyards, the incorporation of noble varieties, and the commitment of winemakers seeking more flavour instead of alcohol, has led to a new generation of Calatayud wines, which are fine, elegant and very personal.
