PEDRO DE IVAR PRESTIGIO

The art of the anonymous, touches of colour and aromas in the wine

I. VARIETALS: 60% Garnacha, 40% Tempranillo.

II. ALCOHOL: 14% Vol.

II. VINEYARDS AND HARVEST: The grapes come from specially selected reduced plots of old vines ( more than 60 years old) of a very low yield. The complete cycle of these vines has been subject to very careful and continuous tracking. The vineyards, located in the heart of the Queiles Valley , benefit from an exceptional climate influenced by the proximity of Mount Moncayo(height 2315m): signififificant annual sunshine, moderate rainfall and signififificant night/day summer temperature differences, favouring the maturity and ripening of the grapes. The ¨poor¨ soil retains water at a deep level. The roots of the old vines extend deep down into the earth where they feed off a balanced mix of minerals and water. At the moment of harvesting – carried out manually – the best grapes are selected at the precise moment of their phenological maturity and ideal alcohol level. They are then transferred with the utmost care to the winery.

III. ELABORATION: In the winery, the wine is fermented with indigenous yeast, and remains at a controlled temperature of 30ºC. Recoveries are carried out twice daily in order to extract the ideal colour. After a total incubation period of 30 days , the wine is introduced into new american oak barrels where it is kept for 14 months. It is decanted 4 times during this period. Before bottling, the wine is clarified with egg white without any filtering so as not to upset either its strength of palate or aroma.

IV. TASTING: Aspect: Cherry colour, bright , high layer. Due to the absence of filtering , with the passing of time sediment may appear in the bottle – proof of its authenticity.
Aroma: Intense, complex , dominance of the ripe fruit and well integrated oak.
Palate: Strong, very meaty with sweet tannins and a tannic background of smooth oak. An excellent and persistent finish.

This wine is the fruit of careful labours undertaken both by our winegrowers in the vineyards and in the winery.
