Bierzo of extremely good quality-price ratio by Raúl Pérez, who is titled as one of Spain's most skilled winemakers.
Terroir, production method and maturation: La Clave comes from the cool mountainous area of Ponferrada, the center of Bierzo, in the town of Valtuille de Abajo. The soil consists of slate and red clay, and the orchards covering 8 hectares are located at an altitude of 550-600 meters. The average age of the vines is 70-80 years. Manual harvesting. Whole bunches ferment spontaneously in large oak vats, macerating for about 60 days. Aging for 12 months in French oak barrels.
Use: A multi-purpose food wine that is suitable for a tapas table and as an accompaniment to various meat dishes. Also try it with sheep's and goat's milk cheeses.
Description: The aroma has ripe red berries, cherry and a hint of vanilla. A relatively rich taste with a pleasant acid balance.
