Product Description

The elegant wine Perelada Finca Malaveïna is produced by bodega Castillo de Perelada, the first winery in Europe awarded with the LEED® Gold sustainability certification, granted by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

This Spanish red wine is sourced from Finca Malaveïna, a scenic vineyard with red clayey soils which has stunning views of the eastern Pyrenees and the Mediterranean sea.

The 2021 vintage of this single parcel red wine from L'Empordà is a blend composed of 63% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 6% Grenache.

Harvested by hand and meticulously selected, the grapes were cold-macerated for a long time before fermenting under controlled temperature. Each variety was separately vinified.

After that, the wine Perelada Finca Malaveïna 2021 was drawn off and aged for 27 months in new French oak barrels from Allier. Finally, this vegan wine was aged for some months in the bottle before its commercial release.

Decant this Crianza red wine from L'Empordà 1 hour before you drink it.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Finca Malaveïna is deep purple with a ruby rim.


Prominent notes or red and black fruit, sweet spices, vanilla, clove and cocoa. As this of blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Grenache opens, there appear remembrances of Mediterranean herbs, balsam, green bell peppers and dry earth.


Bold and palate-coating, but never overpowering. This red wine of Castillo Perelada has a crisp acidity, excellent balance and mild tannins. Menthol, wild berries, aromatic herbs and some earthy notions over a smokey-mineral background. Long, elegant finish.
