Pagos del Moncayo is a family-run producer based at the foot of the Sierra del Moncayo, in the heart of the Iberian Mountain range. The artisanal winery embraces the traditions which have been passed down through the generations, inspired by centuries of cultivating Garnacha in the vineyards of Campo de Borja. The vineyard is cultivated entirely manually and the traditional practice of treading grapes is still used to this day. This combination of traditional practices with modern techniques, results in wines that retain the purest flavours of the land. They work sustainably and are part of EcoProWine, an initiative which aims to reduce the environmental impact of wine production.
2017 was notable in terms of quality but low in terms of quantity. The vintage started with a mild, dry winter, with little rainfall throughout spring until the end of April; it was the driest April in the history of the DO. Spring was warm, with the ‘cierzo’ wind noticeable all the way through the summer. Hotter, drier conditions throughout summer with almost no rainfall from early June onwards, resulted in reduction in yield of 30%. The quality of grapes harvested was excellent, with good concentration of flavour.
The estate comprises 22 hectares of family owned vineyard. The vines are in excess of 80 years old and are planted in the foothills of the Sierra del Moncayo Mountain range. The soils in the vineyard are nutrient poor and are composed of brown, limey, calcareous, sandy limestone. The old vines have deep root systems which nourish the vines imparting complex flavours in the resulting wine. The grapes are handharvested and are transported to the winery in small containers of no more than 20 kilograms, in order to preserve the quality of the fruit.
The grapes were partially destemmed and placed in an open vat. Each vat contained grapes from an entire day of harvesting. The grapes were macerated for one week prior to fermentation. When fermentation was underway, the grapes were crushed under foot; the artisanal method developed to extract the desired levels of colour, flavour and fine tannins from the grapes. When fermentation was complete, the wine was separated from the fermentation residue by a traditional manual pressing system, guaranteeing the highest quality.
Dark ruby in colour, Prados Fusion offers a rich, fruity nose with Mediterranean red fruits enhanced by hints of sweet spice. The palate seduces with layers of juicy red fruits, smooth and silky tannins and a long finish.
