Characteristics of Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal
Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal is a red wine made in the Ribera del Duero by the Pago de los Capellanes winery.
The name of the winery has many years of history. In the fourteenth century the parish of Pedrosa del Duero, the town where the winery is located, housed a parish in which the chaplains gave Mass in exchange for small plots of land. Over time, the parish grew to a large plot.
Years later the land passed to the City Council, but for the locals that land would still always be the chaplains' plot.
Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal is a varietal Tempranillo made with grapes from a single plot, El Nogal. A small plot of 6 hectares of very limited production with calcareous clay soils.
The temperature variation during ripening time is around 20ºC between day and night. A strong contrast helps a perfect ripening of the grapes and gives a very balanced acidity.
The harvest is done manually. The first stage of the development is a grape maceration performed at low temperature (14ºC), which lasts for 6 days.
Alcoholic fermentation takes place over 28 days, at a temperature of 26ºC, in vats of French oak with indigenous yeasts from the vineyard.
Once the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, the wine goes to new French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation occurs for 20 days at 22 ° C.
Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal spends 22 months aging in new French oak barrels, rotating through 4 different types of oak.
Once the aging is complete, it is bottled unfiltered and unclarified. A wine from the Ribera del Duero which is elegant and complex, with a long life in the bottle.
Serve at 16ºC

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.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
