Mauro Pérez was born among the vines of Pedrosa de Duero, a farmer full of wisdom and love for his land, he planted and tilled the vineyards which today are the source of wines with unique characteristics. Pedrosa and Pérez Pascuas are the most commonly mentioned “P words” in conversations about wine from the Castilian region of Spain. The quiet Pedrosa de Duero has become synonymous with Pérez Pascuas, the surnames of the town’s most cherished sons: Benjamin, Manuel and Adolfo. These brothers have inherited a sense of brotherhood with the land that gives them grapes, the fruit of years of hard work. The Pérez Pascuas family maintains a daily relationship, motivated by love, with its vineyards. The result is one of the best wines made in the region of Ribera del Duero.
The 2015 vintage began in a winter with good water reserves in the subsoil. The warm, dry spring weather continued until June when heavy rainfall coincided with the onset of flowering. Summer brought the odd storm and was followed by a very dry autumn. Although the harvest was slightly earlier than usual, the analytical and organoleptic characteristics as well as the balance of the berries were ideal, which meant the fruit could be harvested at the perfect stage of ripeness. Wines from this excellent vintage have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential on the palate, with sweet tannins revealing the good phenolic ripening of the berries. This vintage is reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
Cherry red with intense garnet hints. Spicy, balsamic aromas such as menthol and incense, roasted coffee and mineral undertones. Full and powerful in the mouth, it is balanced.
