Overview

The 8 hectare El Pasiego, Susana and Oriol’s vineyard in Toro is the source for three wines – one clarete and two reds. While located in Toro, near the village of Villaester, Oriol’s cellar work is so uncompromising and unique (for the area) that his wines are frequently denied by the local authorities forcing him to bottle his reds as table wines. Paramos de Nicasia is made from Tinta del País, fermented by indigenous yeasts with a small percentage of whole clusters (about 20%). The wine sees a short maceration of 14 days followed by 14 months of aging in 225L and 600L neutral French oak demi-muids.
