Vinification Details

  • Once the grapes have been received and crushed in the winery, the must (grape juice) is left for cold maceration. This allows the aromas to develop and extracts colour from the skins. The must is fermented at a controlled temperature and then the wine goes through a malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. After light filtration, the wine is bottled in an inert atmosphere to ensure the best maturation in the bottle.

History

  • Pagos del Rey occupies a privileged setting on the right bank of the Ebro river in the foothills of Rioja Alavesa in the town of Fuenmayor, where wine-making and tradition for the very heart of the Rioja Denominacion de Origen Califcada. Work on the Pagos del Rey winery in La Rioja began in 2004, with the first vintage in 2006 and completion of the buildings in 2008. The jewel in its crown is its ageing house, with room for 20,000 American and French oak barrels.

Regional Information

  • All over Spain wine is an important part of the culture, but in La Rioja the people live and breathe wine at every turn. It is the most famous wine producing region in Spain and produces some of its most glorious wines. The production of red wines accounts for around 95% of the total, with notable white and rose wines also being produced. The great Tempranillo grape dominates in the vineyard, producing wines that are both suitable for drinking when young, and those that are destined for prolonged ageing.

Smooth and fruity

5 stars

Bought a half bottle to use in Chilli. Ended up with some to drink luckily! I have to say, I was not expecting much, and being more of a white wine drinker didn't expect to like it, but this was great. Very smooth, lots of flavour, it appears one of the other reviewers must have got a bad bottle! Really enjoyed it. Unfortunately can't buy a full bottle, but some of this has gone on this weeks shopping.

Good wine, great price.

5 stars

Once the wine has had adequate time to breath it is very smooth and and just the right amount of sweet.

Disappointed

1 stars

I love red wine and as my wife doesn’t drink, I appreciate the advantages of half bottles. Competitively priced and available locally, I took the opportunity to purchase (thankfully) only one bottle. Imagine acid, antifreeze and dark red food colouring and you are on the way to understanding what this wine tastes like. Such a pity. In France, there is a wide selection of good quality, competitively priced wine in 37.5cl sizes; clearly the UK has a long way to go.
