Castillo Perelada Finca Malaveina 2005 14.5 % 075 l
Perelada Finca Malaveïna is a red wine produced by the Castillo de Perelada winery in the DO Empordà, in the northeast region of the Iberian Peninsula.
The grapes come from a single farm, la Finca Malaveïna, located in the village of Garriguella, in the Alt Empordà.
There are 19 hectares of hillside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, with red clay soil and boulders.
It has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot summers tempered by the proximity of the sea and with a great influence from the Tramontana, a strong north wind that can reach gusts up to 120 km/h.
Perelada Finca Malaveïna is made from a blend of Merlot, Garnacha and Syrah varieties.
The harvest is done manually, with a selection occurring in the vinyard. Each of the varieties are vinified separately. A long maceration of the grape is performed before fermentation, which occurs at a controlled temperature of 25 ° C.
Finca Malaveïna is aged for 21 months in new French Allier Bordeaux oak barrels.
A superb wine estate in Empordà, with excellent value and great aging potential. We recommend decanting before serving.
