The grapes for the Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva from Jean Leon grow in the beautiful Spanish growing area DO Penedès in the single vineyard Vinya Palau.
In the glass this wine shines in a rich purple red with ruby highlights. In the fragrant bouquet aromas of red berries and juicy cherries - there are also notes of cherry jam - merge with delicate notes of vanilla and fine spicy-herbal notes. First this Spanish red wine is slender and silky on the palate, before this wine then presents its dense, powerful personality with aromas of cherry and spice. The soft tannins harmonise wonderfully with the sweet fruit and the fresh acidity. The oak wood is elegantly integrated and accompanies the long finish with a spicy touch.
Vinification of Jean Leon Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva
The Merlot grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness and immediately brought to Jean Leon's winery. There the grapes are carefully destemmed and fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. Once the fermentation process is complete, this wine is aged in French oak barriques for a total of 12 months. Afterwards this red wine matures on the bottle for a certain time.
