D.O.Q. Priorat (Catalonia)
Pinord Chateldon Reserva is a red wine from the Penedes prepared by Pinord, a family winery founded in 1942 in Vilafranca del Penedes, near the railway station. From there, wines are sent to the rest of Spain, the station facilitating this. It is a wine cellar of long journeys that is reflected in each of their wines.
The climate in the Penedès is Mediterranean, i.e. warm and soft. It is characterized by record long hot summers and cold, dry winters. This wine is a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Pinord estate located in the Montanyans under the Penedés. The vineyards are planted on deep, sandy, clay, permeable soils that retain rainwater. They are poor in organic matter, calcareous and infertile. As for processing, after the harvest of the grapes at their optimum ripeness, maceration is performed before fermentation and gentle pressing, trying not to remove tastes and herbaceous aromas. Finally, this wine spends 14 months in oak barrels to achieve the roundness of tannin concentration and stability of wine. After bottling, the wine bottle is left to stand in the wine cellar.
In the mouth it is smooth, with notes of wood from aging. Long aftertaste and a ripe body.
Garnet colour with purple hues. Clean and bright.
On the nose, intense aromas are presented: raisins and jams accompanied by notes of oak. You can also appreciate the unique varietal flavour and aromas of cloves and peppers.
Intense aromas of ripe red fruit (almost jam) with elegant notes of toasted, given by the wood.
Spicy and pepper notes (characteristic of the variety) with a light touch of undergrowth.
A gentle palate with moderate ageing. The ageing tastes stand out in good balance with the body of the wine and its notes of preserved fruit and raisins.
