The Story

Reserva Real was created after his majesty King Don Juan Carlos visited our winery in 1995, and was treated to one of the most exclusive and limited production wines in Spain.

Origin: It is created from the best Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes from our small vineyard Agulladolç, which is also home to a beautiful 11th century Romanesque hermitage. After 18 months in new French oak barrels, and thanks to the great quality of the tannins in this wine.

Producer's Tasting Notes: Fresh, intense, complex aroma with notes of jams (blackberry, cherry) and leather. Superb body on the palate, with silky tannins, exquisitely developing at length in the mouth.

Serving suggestions: Excellent with meat dishes such as roasts or the stews typical of Mediterranean cuisine, meat braised in tomato and pepper sauce or cooked with aromatic herbs and spices (thyme, oregano, rosemary, laurel and pepper).

Written Notes

Dark garnet in color. Rich dark plum notes with a touch of earthiness, cigar, and vanilla. Medium body and acidity with perfect harmony across the palate. Finish lingers forever. Fantastic integration at this point with many, many years left in the wine.
