Rejón is our best Tempranillo vineyard, located in El Pego in the region of Toro, and is around 130 years old. The low yielding fruit shows the essence of an indigenous grape that reflects, like no other, the land where it is from.
Red wine aged for 20 months in oak barrels.
Rejón is the name of our best vineyard of Tempranillo located in the town of El Pego, within Toro’s appellation, the 130 years old vines are planted on incredible top layer of gravel over very sandy soils. This very limited production tries to reflect the typicity and genuineness of the indigenous grapes coming from this unique terroir. The grapes are carefully handpicked in small baskets of 15 Kgs and both the final step of alcoholic fermentation and the malolactic fermentation has been carried out in new French oak barrels, where it has remained for 20 months.
Opaque purple color, very intense and complex on the nose with ripe black fruits (blackberries, plum) and mineral notes. It displays an unctuous mouthfeel, powerful and rounded, well-structured and meaty but at the same time balanced with round and wide sweet tannins. Elegant and flavorful, tasty with a long finish. Rejón is a wine that conveys, through the old vine where it comes from, the serenity and complexity of a fine wine.
This wine is ideal to pair with powerful stews, rice with meat game, grilled red meats, roasted lamb, pork and beef. Big game meat, spicy sausages and very cured cheeses.
