The Story

The inimitable Viña El Pisón produces a wine which is a reflection of the competence of our ancestors and the passion of those who want to keep the spirit of a vineyard alive.

 

An extraordinary vineyard, an extraordinary wine. The pure expression of the symbiosis between soil, climate, vine and man. The overwhelming sweetness together with a hold energy message. This is a feast of sensations difficult to understand full of sensibility and mystery. Viña El Pisón is a wine to lay down and to enjoy time’s magic.

The delicate balance between all of the natural agents that comprise this unique environment produces a wine that is full of subtle minerality, fine fruit, both complex and delicate seasoned nuances and tannins that have enveloping and caressing volumes. This is a wine with surprising expressivity; a wine with a natural elegance that provokes deep and changing feelings.

Good looking normal size bottle. Colour is ruby red and medium. On the nose it is intense, complex, ripe and rich. The taste is full, silky, fragrant, warming, with silky tannins, and low in acidity and with balanced structure. On the palate it is layered and has balsamic, caramel, charcoal, chocolate, coffee, cranberry, earthy, herbs, leather, meaty, mineral, pepper, toasty, vanilla and violet flavours. The finish is medium long and spicy. This wine is sophisticated and excellent. I do recommend.
