Winemaker Notes

From the ancient mountains of Andalucia - land that has been cultivated throughout history by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Muslims - lies this categorically modern winery with state of the art facilities and stunning architecture. This mountainous area (the nearby Calar Alto observatory sits at 2,100 meters) enjoys more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, providing optimal ripening conditions during the day while a 20 degree drop at night grants the necessary acidity and balance. Este is represented by a pregnant mare - a symbol of fertility that has blessed the estate's fields for thousands of years. Consulting Winemaker Rafael Palacios' skillful hand working behind the scenes is abundantly clear - a stunning wine for an even more stunning price.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Este is composed of 50% Monastrell, 25% Tempranillo, with the balance Garnacha, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot aged for 6 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it reveals a lightly roasted bouquet of black cherry and blueberry, underbrush, spice box, and violets. Supple, sweetly-fruited, and forward, this tasty, friendly effort has no hard edges. Drink it over the next 3 years.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
