EL SUEÑO DE AMADO

VINTAGE

2017

VARIETY

Garnacha 100%

VINEYARD

From a single plot, “La Casilla de Cabezorroyo”; vineyard grafted in 1918 on the upper slopes of Yerga, in the municipality of Alfaro by our grandfather Amador Escudero Pérez. This vineyard comprises old vines with tortuous branches that have grown while strictly dry farmed. Producing 4000-5000 Kg/Ha.

PREPARATION

The hand-picked grapes are placed in 300 kilo crates which are immediately placed in a reefer container.

The harvested grapes are refrigerated so they can be placed in the tank at 4 to 6ºC. This temperature is maintained for a few days to achieve a (preferably) cold maceration to extract the maximum colour and flavours possible.

Once made, the wine goes into a new French oak barrel for ageing. This wine has remained in the barrel for twelve months.

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR

Deep cherry red, medium intensity.

AROMA

Medium intensity, complex, subtle. It is a wine that evolves continuously in the glass, providing aromas of ripe red and fresh black fruit, characteristic of Garnacha. In turn, the fruit is accompanied by notes of tobacco, cocoa and roasted aromas.

ON THE PALATE

A round, balanced and sweet wine; very fresh due to the acidity pertaining to the Garnacha.

SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS

Consume at a temperature of 14-16ºC. Allow the wine to breathe first, so it can express its full potential.

HISTORY

El sueño de Amado

This wine is a tribute to the lengthy winemaking tradition in our family and all its participants, especially our grandfather but also our father, both named Amador.

Wedding portrait of Amador and Julia, 1918

On 15 June 1918, our grandparents, Amador (known as AMADO) and Julia married in Grávalos.

After the harvest, they honeymooned through the region of Valencia, specifically they went to Requena, because they already knew that they were beginning to educate students in oenology, and they longed for this training for some of their children yet to come.

As a souvenir, they brought back vine shoots of the varieties in the region (bobal and a type of white) by train.

Upon returning, grandpa Amado grafted the vine in Casilla de Cabezorroyo, planted in 1916, from which we have made this very wine.

Nowadays, we can find the bobal and white strains in a corner of the vineyard – the souvenirs of their honeymoon.
