Characteristics of Payoya Negra
Payoya Negra is a red wine from D.O Sierra de Málaga produced by Finca La Melonera.
The winery is located in Serranía de Ronda, a region in the heart of the province of Málaga with viticulture tradition dating back more 3,000 years, like trades with the Phoenicians.
The objective of Finca La Melonera is to recuperate their winemaking traditions of old, using the grape varietals that are on the edge of extinction in the region.
Payora Negra is produced from the varieties Syrah (60%), and the native grape Tintilla de rota (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%).
The grape originates from their own plots of land located at 600 to 900 meters above sea level.
The methods of cultivation are purely organic, no pesticides or herbicides are used, they use Arab tiles to aid water retention, which has no adverse effect on the environment.
The harvest is completed by hand, and transported to the winery in small 7kg baskets.
For production, Payoya Negra is macerated and fermented at 25ºC and aged for 12 months in 225 litre French oak barrels from Allier.
The name and label refer to a native breed of goat that produces exquisite goat's cheese.

08/09/17Payoya Negra 2014We had this wine whilst visiting Ronda in Spain, and I was very keen to source a bottle of it for a present. So I was very pleased when I found it on Decántalo.
The wine is rich, full-bodied, smooth and very strong. It slips down very easily and has a delicious velvet feel to it. Very much recommended.

There was a time whereMálaga was a region of real prestige, their wines were consumed in European Courts, enjoyed across the European and American markets, more famous than the wines from Jerez at its peak. Authentic Málaga wines are one of the true treasures of fortified wines, deep, sweet, profound, mysterious in their translucent darkness, which even now are some of the world’s leading wines, from their whites, known for their dryness, up to their Pajarete wines, which easily reach an alcoholic content of around 20%.
