Characteristics of Pago de Carraovejas

Pago de Carraovejas is one of the most well-known wines from D.O. Ribera del Duero produced by Bodega Pago de Carraovejas.
It is a coupage of Tinto Fino (91%), Cabernet Sauvignon (6%) and Merlot (3%) varieties.
The grapes are grown on an estate owned by the winery, the estates are scattered throughout Ribero del Duero and the grapes are grown with careful supervision from the technical team in the winery.
The Carraovejas estate is situated on the outskirts of Peñafiel, one of the towns with the most viticulture tradition in the Ribera del Duero, composed of limestone clay soils with red loam.
An oceanic climate with low precipitation, very cold in the long and wet winter falling to temperatures of
-10ºC.
The summers are short and very hot, reaching temperatures of 40ºC, however the nights and mornings are fresh.

The harvest is done by hand and the grapes are transported in small vibrating stainless steel trailers, arriving at the winery destemmed, whole and unharmed.

Pago de Carraovejas undergoes a fermentation in small stainless steel deposits and French oak vats with local yeast from their own vineyards.
There is an aging for 12 months in fine grain new and semi-new (3 years old) French and American oak barrels.

Pago de Carraovejas is clarified with natural egg whites and bottled by gravity.
It rests for 12 months in the bottle before it is released onto the market.

A wine that will delight wine lovers with a passage marked by the barrel. Very fine and elegant.

Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing

Tasting notes Pago de Carraovejas

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
Pago de Carraovejas 2015 surprises us with its silky profile in the mouth. In this vintage, which is qualified as a very good one, they have managed to balance maturity and ageing, achieving a great result. The spicy aromas and black fruit perfectly combine with the mid-palate, concentrated, but with a round and polished tannin. Bravo!
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.

    Pago de Carraovejas is now a consolidated reality in La Ribera del Duero, where tradition is combined with the necessary modernity of its facilities. However, it prefers the more conservative inertia by applying a personal rational philosophy aimed at the production of wines with studied percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, in a region where the Tinto Fino variety seems to be the absolute king. An open mind that is defined with a perfect symbiosis between research and creativity, viticulture and oenology, experience and technology, and innovation and personality.
