Sexto Elemento is a tiny production estate in the area of Venta del Moro, in the western portion of the Utiel-Requeña D.O. Like many families of the area, Rafa Lopez and the generations before him have farmed a few hectares of grapes for the past one hundred years, selling their fruit to a nearby cooperative for a production of mediocre wine. As Rafa became more involved, he learned of the cultured yeasts, enzymes, and other corrections the co-op practiced regularly at the factory. It was the straw that broke the camel's back, as Rafa knew his organic estate had the potential for greatness. In 2000 he decided to take his winemaking roots into full swing and released his first vintage in 2003. Through the traditions and customs that were passed on to him from his father, he carries out a natural elaboration in the cellar, never using any sulfites, and allowing for the wines to go through a very long and slow natural fermentation (11+ months). Scarce rainfall, hot summers, and bitter cold winters help to create a perfect situation for the thick-skinned Bobal variety, and at Rafa's mere 6 hectare estate, he only yields 1-1.5 kg per vine on average. With an annual production of just 10,000 bottles, these exclusive wines of Sexto Elemento are already considered a cult-style production, with the power and elegance to be one of the most coveted in all of Spain.
