Luis Pérez El Muelle de Olaso is a white wine produced by Bodegas Luis Pérez in Jeréz de la Frontera, V.T. Cádiz.
After a long career in the world of oenology, especially in the research field, in 2002 Luis Pérez began this project with the aim of recovering the tradition of red wine in the lands of Jeréz. In the 25-hectare farm, Hacienda Vistahermosa, he decided to destine 14 of those hectares to the cultivation of red varieties.
This particular farm is located in the heart of the vineyard area of Jeréz, on the high mountain of Pago del Corchuelo, which has features that make it unique:
- its high elevation influenced by the sea winds and a specific microclimate.
- the nature of the soil, with calcareous clays with gypsiferous marl, unique to the area. The Albariza soils.
- the plantation and the training of the vines is intended to attain great-quality wines.
Bodegas Luis Pérez has very modern facilities, designed for minimal intervention in all processes in order to achieve wines that express, to the maximum extent, the features of the variety and the land where they are born.
Luis Pérez El Muelle de Olaso is a wine made from Palomino from Pago Carrascal, a vineyard located in Sanlucar de Barrameda, quite close to the Atlantic Ocean, planted on the typical Albariza soils.
The harvest is carried out manually, and for two months, each grape is selected at its optimum point. Once at the winery, 80% of the grapes ferment in stainless steel deposits, and the remaining 20% are left in the sun (asoleo). They ferment in sherry butts after ageing on their lees for 6 months in deposits.
