More information about Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva DO - Jean Leon

Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva from the wine-growing region of Catalonia, aged in barrel, reveals a dense purple red in the glass. Held at a slight angle, the red wine glass reveals a charming garnet red hue at the rims. Giving it some air in the wine glass by swirling, this red wine reveals a high density and fullness, which is evident in strong church windows at the rim of the glass. In the glass, this red wine from Jean Leon shows aromas of blackcurrant, plum, black cherry, blackberry and wild berry confit, complemented by vanilla, cocoa bean and dark chocolate. This wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with exceptionally little residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine in the top wine range, this Spaniard naturally enraptures with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Aroma does not necessarily need sugar. On the palate, the texture of this powerful red wine is wonderfully silky and dense. The final of this mature red wine from the wine-growing region of Catalonia, more precisely from Penedès DO, finally thrills with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral hints of the soils dominated by sand and clay.

Vinification of the Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva by Jean Leon

The powerful Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva from Spain is a single-varietal wine, organically pressed from the Merlot grape variety. The grapes grow in optimal conditions in Catalonia. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of clay, sand, limestone and gravel. Of course, the Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva is also determined by climate and viticultural style Penedès DO. This Spaniard can be called an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, exceptionally distinguished. After the harvest, the grapes arrive at the winery by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. After fermentation is complete, the Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva is aged for another 12 months in French oak barriques.
