Finca La Pared Cuvee Especial
Finca La Pared
Spain - Navarra

The Cuvee Especial is a Graciano and Syrah blend aged in oak barrels that produces a full-bodied, fresh wine of great complexity and long lasting finish.

Wine Type
Graciano, Syrah
Soil type
Fermentation and maceration are carried out separately for each variety, in small stainless steel tanks, combining pumpovers and délestages. Grapes are gently pressed and the wine undergo malolactic fermentation in even smaller stainless steel tanks. When the wine has naturally lost its thickest suspended solids, it is transferred to barrels; each variety separately and in oak of different origins.
Graciano is aged in hand-crafted, fine-grained French oak barrels. Syrah is aged in American oak barrels that enhance the freshness of the wine and its refinement. The wine is aged for 12 to 14 months in the same barrels without racking. Then the wine is blended and bottled without fining.

"This enticing wine has aromas of ripe black and red plums with brown baking spices. In the mouth, it is medium to full bodied, with satiny tannins, ripe flavors of raspberry, cassis and dark cherry and a touch of powdered chocolate in the finish. - Mike DeSimone"
