A stunning Red Wine from a prestigious D.O Pago
The 2017 vintage was extremely dry and with strong winds during the flowering season. This resulted in less competition between the bunch and the strain, so the bunches were loose and spaced. These winds led to a total absence of disease. The fruit set was lower than normal with a lower production in the vineyard which translated into a lot of quality in the grapes.
Martúe is the winery’s star wine, an exhaustive blend of 33% Syrah, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot and 19% Malbec and 7% Merlot.
It is a rich, fresh wine, with good aging capacity, round and with fine tannin.
Preparation: Harvesting of the grapes at their optimum moment of maturation at night harvest. Artisanal elaboration, fermentation with native yeasts, long macerations. The wine has been in French oak barrels for 10 months.
The soil: Our limestone, saline and very nutrient-poor soils produce elegant and powerful wines of high quality.
Climate: Extreme temperatures typical of the continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold, dry winters. A wide range of night-day temperatures is observed during the ripening months of the grapes, from July to September, which allows for greater synthesis of polyphenols at night.
