Pela Roques 2019
El Pela Roques es un ave de las montañas mediterráneas que busca alimento entre las grietas de las rocas. Mustiguillo crea esta analogía buscando "grietas" en diferentes suelos para conseguir nuevos estilos, como es este monovarietal de Syrah y su increíble textura sedosa.
Viñedo y elaboración
Opinión de los críticos
The new 2019 Pela Roques de Mustiguillo Finca Conejeros is a Mediterranean Syrah from high-altitude vineyards to keep the freshness of the Finca Conejeros, a 3.3-hectare vineyard in the north of Requena planted in 1998 on sandstone and quartz soils. The vines are organically farmed and the wine is certified. It fermented with 50% full clusters in 8,000-liter oak vats with a long but soft maceration. It matured in those vats for eight months. It has 13.5% alcohol with a pH of 3.42 and 5.95 grams of acidity. It's a characterful and very different wine, not really varietal in the fruit sense but more marked by the soils (quartz and feldspar), a little reductive, flinty and herbal, a little wild and with a medium body and a velvety texture with some chalky tannins. Full of personality. 11,200 bottles were filled in November 2020. I sampled an unbottled 2020, and despite being a riper year, the wine kept a similar profile, marked by the place.
