You adopt vines from our farm in Vélez-Rubio (Spain). The cultivation here is certified as organic by the European Union since 2016. During the process of adoption you can choose a name which we will use to identify your vines. The Bodega Palomillo’s Crianza wine is a coupage that blends 3 varieties of red grape: Tempranillo, Syrah and Merlot. The Tempranillo variety originates from Spain and is one of the most widely cultivated to produce full-bodied wines. Its name is from the Spanish word “temprano” which means early as it is ready to harvest a couple of weeks before other grape varieties. The Syrah is cultivated all over the world and is believed to have originated in the Southeast of France. Its flavour is seen to be influenced by the climate, producing more full-bodied wines in warmer climates. The Merlot variety, also from France, specifically the Bordeaux region, produces a finer, more aromatic wine. The combination resulting from these 3 grapes makes a truly exquisite wine which has been awarded 89 points in the Peñín Guide. The cultivation is carried out organically in the Sierra de las Estancias, a sparsely populated region in the Southeast of Spain. Until the beginning of the 20th century it was well renowned for its excellent wine production, ended sadly by the phylloxera plague which dried out the grand majority of the vines. Its slate soil and Mediterranean climate, with cold winters and hot summers, favours the production of excellent quality wines and we are recovering its wonderful reputation with hard work and hope for our winery. We currently produce 9,000 bottles of Crianza wine per hectare. The vines are grown on trellises on dry land, although if you come to the farm you will see that we have installed an emergency irrigation system to save the vines in case of drought. We only had to use it once when the vines were very young and barely had roots, we hope that it will not be needed again. Your adoption is 12 years old and its productive life is around 50 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your adoption dies, we will replace it with no additional cost assuring the delivery of your harvest from others. Your vines produce an average of 6.5kg of organic grapes each season. With this amount we can produce around 2.25l of organic red wine Crianza Paco Palomillo, 2017.
Each season we will send you a box with: 3 x __Organic red wine Crianza Paco Palomillo, 2017__ (0.75l, bottle) __Visual__: Light wine, high intensity colour, cherry red with blue trim __Aged__: 12 months in American oak barrels and a further 12 months in bottles. __Smell__: Clean wine on the nose, high aromatic intensity with dominant primary and oak aromas. Highlights red and black berries, stone fruits, menthol and toasty oak notes. __Taste__: Dry on the palate with medium acidity and medium alcohol content, medium bodied with fruit hues and toasty creaminess of the oak. It has a long-lasting finish. __Winemaking__: Harvesting of the best clusters selected manually. The grapes are processed mechanically in the winery to obtain the must. Once filtered, it is left to ferment with neutral yeast to maintain the character of the grape. Next it is filtered and malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is then placed in American oak barrels for 12 months. After this time, it is clarified with egg white and filtered again to leave the wine free of suspended matter. It is then bottled and labeled. __Sealing__: Natural cork stopper __Pairing__: Due to its body, the perfect pairing for this wine is a cured red meat, game birds, cold meat or with a dessert made with pure chocolate. Although this wine is aged, it is a very appetizing wine to drink alone or in good company, be that a person or a great book. We recommend storing it horizontally so that the wine is in contact with the cork at all times. Keep the bottle in a place with a stable temperature, away from vibrations, strong smells and light. Conservation between 18-20°C. If stored correctly, it can be consumed within 4 years at optimal state of consumption.
