Characteristics of Predicador

Predicador is a red wine from the Bodega Contador in the D.O La Rioja.

Bodega Contador is a personal project created by Benjamín Romeo, one of the most outstanding Spanish winemakers of his time. His talent was discovered for two consecutive vintages of his garage wine 'Contador' (2004-2005) which obtained 100 parker points, a remarkable feat.

With Bodegas Contador, in San Vicente de Sonsierra (La Rioja), Benjamín Romeo wants to give a sense of continuity to a unique and personal style based on the attention to each tiny detail iin the production of his wines.

The wine Predicador is produced from Tempranillo and a pinch of Garnache. The vines are 20 to 35 years old, from 12 separate fields.

The vines are cultivated according to ecological and sustainable agricultures principles, organic fertilisers are used. The vines are treated only when absolutely essential and with non-residual products.

The harvest is completed entirely by hand, in small containers. Once picked and transported to the winery within 30 minutes to avoid oxidation.

For production of Predicador, after a careful destemming process, the grape ferments in cone shaped containers and in stainless steel containers at 19-24ºC for 7-10 days.

Lastly, Predicador is aged for 15 months in French oak.
Predicador is a great pretence to discover some of the excellent wines produced by Benjamín Romeo.
