This interesting Spanish red wine is produced from a single parcel of Merlot vines planted in 1991.
The 10-hectare vineyard, Vinya Palau, has two kinds of soils: one is a combination of clay and limestone, and the other is composed of sand and gravel. This fact gives Jean Leon Vinya Palau Merlot a remarkable complexity.
The grapes were harvested by hand. First they were destemmed, and then this organic red wine of the Jean Leon winery was fermented and macerated for about 20 days in stainless steel tanks.
Aerate 30 minutes before drinking.
The wine Jean Leon Vinya Palau Merlot is medium ruby with a reddish rim.
Complex and ever-evolving, this varietal Merlot carries aromas of juicy red fruit over a balsamic background, with hints of menthol, toast, fine leather, Havanna cigars, flowers and vegetables.
Fresh and moreish, with a well-balanced passage and a smooth body. Undergrowth, dry earth, vegetables, aromatic herbs, fruit and balsam combine harmoniously. This wine from bodega Jean Leon has a lively acidity, mild tannins and a long finish
