Product Description
Details

Belonging to his "Proyectos de Autor" collection, La Clave is a blended Spanish red wine by the redoubtable Raúl Pérez, a winemaker at the top of his game.

Made principally from Mencía, complemented with Syrah and Tempranillo, the grapes come from vines planted in clay-limestone soils in Valtuille de Abajo, a village belonging to the DO Bierzo.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were partially destemmed and fermented in diposits and open oak vats. After macerating for 30 days with periodic pump-overs, this Crianza red wine was transferred into 2nd year French oak barrels. After that, La Clave 2018 was aged for 12 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

We suggest that you aerate this red wine from El Bierzo some minutes before drinking. clarificar. Pair with cold cuts and stews.

Appearance

Cleand and bright, La Clave is cherry red with some ruby glints.

Nose

Meaty and earthy, this blend of Mencía, Syrah y Tempranillo also suggests aromas of mulberries and bilberries, with some remembrances of smoke and underbrush.

Palate

Fresh and smooth, the balance of fruit and oak aging is excellent, as is usually the case with the wines of Mr. Raúl Pérez.  This a deep, somewhat austere wine with mildly rugged tannins, a nice acidity, and a long, mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

A nice piece of work, La Clave 2018 from El Bierzo by Raúl Peréz is excellent with meat dishes.
