Availability: In stock
The already legendary Pago de Carraovejas winery decided to celebrate its 25th anniversary with the release of El Anejón de la Cuesta de las Liebres, a remarkable Spanish red wine produced in DO Ribera del Duero.
It is made from a traditional blend of Tinta Fina, alongside some strokes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. All of them come from a single estate planted in 2001 on steep slopes at 900 metres above sea level.
After a meticulous harvest carried out by hand with selection both on site an in the cellar, the grapes of this Crianza red wine from Ribera del Duero were fermented in French "Haute Futaie" oak vats with indigenous yeasts. After that, Pago Carraovejas El Anejón was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Clarified with egg whites, it was finally aged for a minimum of 24 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.
Decant Pago Carraovejas El Anejón 2009 about 2 hours before drinking.

The red wine Pago de Carraovejas El Anejón de la Cuesta de las Liebres has a bright cherry colour with a garnet rim.
Intense aromatic complexity, suggestive and entrancing. Beginning with some subtle understated balsamic and underbrush notes, El Anejón de Pago de Carraovejas soon adds a layer of juicy black fruit, nuanced by delicate notes of blue flowers, notes of bitter cocoa and Havanna cigars, and some deep mineral undertones.
The wine enters boldly onto the palate, and its initially warm character is soon counterbalanced by an exceptional, rock-solid acidity. Texture is lush and velvety, and tannins are almost fully integrated. This wine by Pago de Carraovejas has a long, ever-evolving finish with a deeply toasted and mineral aftertaste.
