This wine talks about harmony and elegance. It comes from a vineyard located in the beautiful property where the Larrainzar family has lived for more than 160 years, surrounded by a century-old stone wall. Its label reminds us of the French style gardens that embellish this magical place. The grapes were picked by hand, finishing at the end of October to ensure its perfect maturation. Then, the different varieties and plots were vinified and aged in barrels separately. Only then we create the final blend, from dozens of finished wines, to achieve a perfect balance where the fruit always plays the leading role.
Appearance: It shows a clean and bright cherry red color, deep and intense.
Nose: frank and clear aroma, perfectly formed by its origin and its aging in oak. We find quality notes of red fruit, hints of wild berries and forest leafs, with elegant notes of cocoa, light burned wood and scrubland that reminds us of the location of the vineyard.
Palate: It is a pleasant wine, which shows its special character since its entry into the mouth. It is very balanced, with an unctuous and delicate palate. All its personality and complexity rises with more intensity at the end, leaving a nice and long memory. A great vintage with a long life ahead.
Pago de Larrainzar is a small family winery that takes on a centuries-old tradition. The grandfather of the current owner founded the first winery in the family house in 1891. They own 17 hectares of vineyard and produce only red wines, normally assemblages of its four varieties and in limited productions.
The winery has number of prizes in international competitions and high scores in the most prestigious guides, such as Guía Peñín or Wine Advocate Robert Parker.
It is a winery that focuses on the quality and personality of its wines, with manual harvesting and aging in French oak barrels.
The export is key to Pago de Larrainzar and today its wines are available in markets such as France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, England, Russia, the United States, Brazil, Mexico, China, South Korea, Japan and Singapore.
In 2014, the Spanish Government granted them the DO PAGO "Larrainzar" Wine Appellation, pending international approval by the European Commission.
The location is unique: the estate is closed by a Wall of Stone made back in the XVII century (like the French "clos") adjacent to the Monastery of Irache, at the foot of Montejurra. They offer quality wine tourism in a close and friendly environment with the benefits of an exceptional wine-growing region.
