Description

Prado Rey is a winery with a pioneering spirit who always seek to explore the limits and possibilities of their vineyard combining tradition and technological advances with respect for the land and the grapes. Prado Rey has the largest grape growing area in Ribera del Duero, 520 hectares of vineyards so the quality of their wines can be controlled and assured every year. Self-sufficient in electricity from their hydroelectric plant and solar farm, producing their own natural fertilizer from livestock and recyling all waste generated have helped define them as a producer engages with the care of the environment whilst producing wines of the utmost quality. The vineyards consist of 8 well-differentiated areas, depending on their altitude, orientation and soil and in each vineyard, painstaking care is taken of the different varieties and plantars. Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are the main varieties grown. Vines over 100 years old were selected from different parts of Ribera del Duero, allowing them to recover some unique, pre-phylloxera vines, such as the Elite plantar.

Very bright, deep cherry-red. Complex and elegant on the nose, with predominating notes of stewed red fruit, and ripe dark fruit; balsamic, spicy and smoky. Rich in tertiary scents. A wine with a good bouquet. Silky entry, with interesting, long-lasting, ripe tannins. Very pleasant velvety, balsamic and ripe fruit sensations. Looking forward to a long life.
