Paisajes La Pasada 2008
Made from 100% Tempranillo single vineyard 58 year old vines, dense, powerful, ripe raspberry flavours; a very complete wine with firm, fine tannins.. Soft mouthfeel yet tight & excellent structure. Nearly full bodied, formidable acid, beefy tannin and very dry. The palate elaborates the nose with dark cherries, raspberries, blackberries, white pepper, and just the faintest hint of caramel.
Paisajes (pie-sarhh-hrez) are a series of handcrafted single vineyard Riojas that ignore conventional practices & use modern techniques; these wines from have created rifts in the Rioja establishment. Paisajes is a vibrant, envelope-pushing partnership between new wave Rioja winemaker Miguel Angel de Gregorio from the renowned Finca Allende & Barcelona’s top wine merchant Quim Vila. The wines are powerful, richly elegant, intensely fruity, softly tannic & complex wines that drink like silk. The beauty in these wines is their finesse & approachability; they can be enjoyed now or they can be cellared for years. Production is tiny with a total of around 800 cases produced each year.
