Product Description
Details

Made from a little-known, highly promising indigenous grape called Prieto Picudo, this Spanish red wine is produced in the northern Spanish region of Castilla y León.

Made from vineyards up to 20 years of age, Estay Prieto Picudo is produced by Dominio Dostares.

The harvest took place in October. Once in the cellar, the grapes were selected, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with 3 daily pump-overs. Then this Crianza red wine was aged for 4 months in new American and French oak barrels. It was racked 3 times during the process.

Finally, Estay Prieto Picudo 2016 was gently filtered and aged for a further 6 months in the cellar before its release.

Drink until 2021.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Estay Prieto Picudo has an intense red colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

This Prieto Picudo is very lively. Exuberant notes of red and black fruit, aromas of violets, and some lactic and spicy touches over a liquorice background.

Palate

Fresh, crisp and zippy, this wine by Dominio Dostares is reminiscent of stawberry candies, toast, aromatic herbs and liquorice. Lively acidity, round tannins and long finish.

 

Our personal opinion

A terrific value, Estay Prieto Picudo 2016 shows the remarkable personality of the Prieto Picudo grape. Pair it with stews and meat recipes.
