PostHeaderIcon Author wines, Pasiego winery

In the town of Sinarcas, on the border between Valencia and Cuenca in Utiel-Requena region, we found a small winery, which has completely revamped its facilities for lovers of good wine and tourism can enjoy it.
Here we go in scoop to visit this new phase of a winery, Criadores y Artesanos is really his name, which produces the famous wines Pasiego. The winery is located near the N-330  road at the end of Sinarcas, and with his new image, it is very easy to identify with the label Pasiego on the three sides of the building which houses the precious wine.

We arrived at the warehouse almost at once that our host, José Luis Salon, one of the members of this new project that began in 1997 as a hobby among its founding members, and that following the awards made and acceptance of their wines in the market was consolidating in what we know today.

Access to the cave begins with a space to park vehicles and there we find the restored house on the ground floor shows us the tools for winemaking, with the upper back where the reception of grapes and starts the process.

The warehouse area is equipped just to the extent thereof, that were commissioned to make the most space. Also on the ground floor is the barrel room, whose capacity can accommodate approximately 100 units in size from Bordeaux, and after a glass tasting room or reception of visitors, where you can taste four wines that this winery produces. 

And we did, of these four options we have three red and white aged in casks for two months, spectacular. The first was a Pasiego Crianza 2005, with 9 months in the barrel and the Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, from vineyards (recalling that in its beginnings the winery did not have these) or farmers who are committed to the winery. 

Next on the list was a Pasiego Reserva 2004 of the same variety as above, but with 10% Merlot, with 13 months aging in oak and the common denominator of all three have a bright red ruby and lots of glycerin, and barely edging the difference in your tone.

Pasiego Autor 2005 was the third red wine that we tasted, wine that combines 47% Cabernet Sauvignon with 33% of Bobal of a wide range of strains and 20% Tempranillo low production. The three wines are very colorful and have enough difference in nose and mouth, but following a distinguished elegance for all to be the hosts of a good table. Red fruits, toast and vanilla tastes and aromas make that show. Perhaps the three wines would be the best table accompany red meats, game and stews, cheeses and elaborate, each with its nuances and evolving over the past two along the food as more light on the palate to fresh air over time. 

The White Pasiego Blanco 2009 with a two-month aging in new barrels, surprising the palate with the 'coupage' of two varieties of 50% as the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc very balanced and pleasing to the palate, serve very cold it is recommended to observe evolution while acclimatized in the glass. 

A very pleasant visit and recommended to soon have an enriching visit to the time you can sample and purchase this very limited number of spectacular wines and enjoy the company of brothers Salon.
