Mahara is a red wine without denomination of origin produced by Bodega Vinifícate in Cádiz.
Bodega Vinifícate is the personal project of José and Miguel Gómez Lucas, two brothers from Cádiz, chemists and training oenologists who in 2011 decided to start making their own wine in their land and with native varieties.
Bodega Vinifícate make wines that speak of their origin, the place where the vineyard is grown, its climate and the vintage, with a craftsmanship production and utmost respect for winemaking traditions. To do so, they have a vineyard that is cultivated biodynamically, Calderín del Obispo, located in the farm Pago de Balbaína. It is planted on the typical soil of the area, "albariza" (organic and marl rock, created by the sedimentation of organisms of an inland sea, clayey-loamy soils high in calcium carbonate and very poor in organic matter. The climate is mild, southern, quite influenced by the western and eastern winds that will greatly affect the ripening of the grapes.
Mahara is a wine made from Tintilla of Rota, from the vineyard Calderín del Obispo, located in the famous Pago la Balbaína, inside the Jeréz triangle.
The harvest is performed manually, and the fermentation is with the whole clusters and native yeasts. This wine is aged in used French and Hungarian oak barrels, and in clay jars (tinajas) for 9 months. They do not add sulphites or any other type of oenological product.
Mahara is a mature, aromatic and expressive wine. On the nose, the aromas of ripe black fruit stand out. In the mouth it is tasty, with medium body, very balanced and long, and with a surprising freshness.
