This is a unique blend of late-harvested macabeo, gewuerztraminer, and chardonnay from mountain vineyards. The result is a refreshing harmony of floral, citrus, and tropical aromas and flavors. The wine is lively, bright, surprisingly rich and certainly memorable.
35% Macabeo, 35% Gewuerztraminer, 30% Chardonnay. Bodegas Pirineos, a member of Grupo Barbadillo, is the founding winery of Somontano. It is deeply rooted in society and has staunch support thanks to the participation of over 200 winemakers from the regional cooperative. The winery produces wines, manzanillas, sherries, and brandies and has become a company of international renown. Bodega Pirineos Marbore was born of a research project supported by the Eureka label. It is the result of a fusion of the best and most precious European oenological values, terroir, native varieties, prestige, with the virtues of New World wine, viticultural precision, enological control, technology, and design. All this makes Marbore an immense wine. A complex and original marriage of tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon, and merlot with their somontano varietals: parraleta and moristel. The component wines are vinified separately and aged 18 months in new French and American oak barriques. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrel, as is weekly batonnage.
