Vina Pedrosa Cepa Gavilan Ribera
Founded in 1980, when the three Perez Pascuas brothers, Benjamin, Manuel and Adolfo, taking their father’s 60 year old Tempranillo vines to form the core of the vineyard, set themselves the task of making a world-class wine in the then relatively unknown Ribero del Duero region.
The estate now comprises 135 hectares of chalk/clay slope, the winery situated on top of the hill just outside the village of Pedrosa de Duero, with panoramic views over the surrounding vineyards and countryside. This altitudinous location is responsible for their overall micro-climate being cooler, with a considerable diurnal temperature differential providing a more protracted growing season with the grapes hanging longer on the vine for slow ripening – the harvest there is often completed weeks after surrounding, lower lying vineyards.
The wines are judiciously matured in French oak casks to produce serious, multi-layered wines of great elegance and finesse.
The Vina Pedrosa Cepa Gavilán Crianza is a beautiful and bold red wine.
On the palate there are notes of blackberry, vanilla and notes.
