Pago de los Balagueses
This comes from the highest quality vineyards on the estate, which received the ‘Pago’ qualification in 2011, the highest ranking of a vineyard in Spain, and it is where the Iberians were cultivating vines nearly 3000 years ago. A wine of huge intensity, deep colour and overall charm. Soft, juicy blackberry and raspberry fruit nose with balsamic depth, precedes the soft and approachable palate that has layers of ripe flavour, balanced with friendly tannins and oak. A fine result from the unusual combination of Garnacha Tintorera and Merlot.
