Producer Note
Pago Calzadilla is a small, family-run estate producing a limited quantity of highly
expressive wines from the province of Cuenca. Located just outside the town of
Huete, the 20 hectares of vines overlook the picturesque river valley of Río Mayor. The
artisanal winery was built in 1980, which coincided with the planting of the vineyard
with red varieties of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Cabernet-Sauvignon. Syrah was
added later. The vineyard is manually cultivated and the wines are made with
minimal intervention in the gravity-fed winery. Cultivated with passion, experience
and expertise the wines are intense and elegant expressions of this unique site.
Vintage
A mild, grey winter was followed by a warm spring initially, that subsequently saw a
drop in temperature. However the vines were healthy and the growing cycle was
more advanced than the previous year. Flowering took place on 4th June. The
summer alternated between warm weeks and fresher ones with lower temperatures
at night. Overall the summer was dry and resulted in ripe, mature berries.
Vineyard
The vines are grown in a unique site located in the Rio Mayor Valley at an altitude of
between 900 and 1,000 metres. The quality grapes come from specific plots known
as Los Barrancos, Cuatro Pinos, Chocilla Vinagre and Viña Carlitos, which were
planted in 2005. The soils are sandy and calcareous and the vineyard benefits from
a distinct microclimate, with frequent mists and winds that protect the vines from
spring frosts and disease. The vines are cultivated using organic preparations such
as compost fertilisers from crop residue and cinnamon and sulphur to prevent
disease. The use of aromatic cover crops between the vines increases the
biodiversity and improves the soil quality.
Winemaking
Paula, the winemaker takes a very non-interventionist approach. The grapes were
picked by hand and carefully selected. The berries from each plot were cooled
before being vinified separately in the gravity-fed winery. The wine was aged for 14
months in a combination of French and American oak barrels of 300 and 500 liters.
The wine was bottled without stabilisation or filtration. Cellared for a minimum of three
years.
Tasting Note
An enticing and satisfying blend from high altitude vines, showing fruity aromas of
strawberry and cherries with a delightful liquorice note and an intriguing spicy
background of nutmeg, clove and coffee. Beautifully balanced and refreshing with a
supple palate and a long, moreish finish.
Serving Suggestion
