"Crushed cherries, orange zest, and scrub brush garrigue with mouthwatering
acidity. Pair this lively red with anything char-grilled over wood fire or roasted on a spit.
Diego Losado, a minimal-interventionist wine grower, is shaking things up in Bierzo, creating wines of intensity, focus, & purity. In the winery, Diego works with a mix of unlined concrete vats and older oak & chestnut casks and foudre with no pumps nor battonage, and minimal SO2 additions. Unfiltered and unfined.
The vines for the "1984" bottling are 70-90 years old and planted on clay soils incorporated with slate and trace minerals at 650 meters elevation, some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. The grapes are partially destemmed, macerated for 7-8 days in 3 large oak casks. The wine is then transferred to small barrels to finish primary and malolactic fermentation, then aged for 8 months." - JOSE PASTOR SELECTIONS
