Save $10.00 (33%)
Museum Real is elaborated with a selection of grapes coming from extremely old vines (around 100 years of age) planted in poor soils with a thick layer of pebbles (50cm and more) followed by limestone-clay, sand and chalk. The vineyards are located in the high grounds of the Pisuerga river valley, Almost reaching 800m asl. Yields are low, between 1000 and 2500 kg/ha. depending on climate and vineyard (one bottle per plant). The viticulture is just like in the old days, bush vines, no trellising, no dripping irrigation, very little pruning. All the above plus a tough continental climate, of drastic contrasts between day and night, winter and summer temperatures, set the basis for an amazing ripening (both alcoholic and phenolic) close to perfection, and very healthy grapes.
Bright flavors of raspberry and cherry mingle with leafy and vanilla notes in this lively red. Juicy acidity and light, firm tannins give this focus. Polished and energetic. Drink now through 2023. 30,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
