Characteristics of El Morrón

El Morrón is a red wine from the D.O. Alicante produced by the Rafa Bernabé winery. This wine is made using only the Garnacha Tinta grape variety.

The grapes used for El Morrón come from vines that grow on limestone and stony soils that are poor in organic matter, which guarantees a more concentrated flavour in the grapes. The vineyards are around 50 years old and are situated at around 700-730 metres above sea level.

The cultivation of the vineyards is carried out without using herbicides and intervening as little as possible with the natural processes. The grapes are grown on low bush vines.

The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes being transported to the facitilies using small boxes with a capacity of 15 kilos. This way the grapes remain in the best condition possible and do not break prematurely on their way to the winery.

At the winery, the grapes ferment for fourty days in barrels with a 300litre capacity. The grapes then devatted and are pressed. The must that is obtained is then placed back into the same barrels.

El Morrón is then aged in French oak barrels of between 225-500litres capacity. The wine is then bottled without being clarified nor filtered.

Reviews

D.O. Alicante

Winery Bernabé Navarro

There is no doubt that the Monastrell grape variety has become a fashionable grape variety. This region is home to over half a dozen cooperatives, which have been at the forefront of a wine revolution, making wines that are respectful to the local culture the area, cultivating vines with care, selecting only the best fruit and producing wines that faithfully express character of the terroir. These wines are easy to identify, due to the fact the estate or vineyard from which they came from is usually printed on their label. Also, their authenticity and quality can be guaranteed by the DO Alicante, which not only certifies the farms, but also everything posted on the wines labeling.
