Characteristics of 46 Cepas Merlot
46 Cepas Merlot is a red wine produced by Alfredo Maestro in Peñafiel (Valladolid), V.T. Castilla y León.
Alfredo Maestro is renown winegrower that has continued with his own progress, without paying attention to trends or currents prevailing at the time. He began to produce wine following conventional methods, this is, adding sulphur, clarifying the wine and a long etcetera. However, he soon decided to make wine using natural methods, turning the characteristics of the terroir into wine in the most faithful way.
Alfredo Maestro challenges and strongly opposes the way wine is made nowadays. He understands that wine must be faithful to its origin and for this reason he gets rid of external elements (sulphur, acid, filters, stabilisers...) According to him, he only needs three elements to create his products: grapes, well-kept vineyards and healthy soil.
Currently, Alfredo Maestro has several projects in different areas, such as Cigales, Ávila, Duratón, and Chinchón.
46 Cepas Merlot is a natural wine made with Merlot from several vineyards located in the municipality of Bocos de Duero (Valladolid). They are located at around 750 metres above sea level, planted on loam-sandy soils with boulders. They are cultivated following a natural viticulture without the use of chemicals like herbicides, pesticides and systemic fungicides.
Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery, on a selection table. With destemmed grapes, it goes through maceration for 12 to 15 days. The alcoholic fermentation takes place with native yeasts in 1000-litre stainless steel deposits, where they wine also goes through the malolactic fermentation. It is not clarified or filtered.
46 Cepas Merlot is a fruity, structured and honest wine. On the nose, its intensity stands out, with prevailing ripe red fruit, and slight hints of spices. In the mouth, it is easy to drink and tasty.
