Bodegas Pinoso was established in 1932. As pioneers of ecological wine production, using sustainable production techniques back in 1997 & dedicated to improving the fertility of their soil. Dedicated to increasing the biodiversity of local ecosystems & by using recycled cardboard for their boxes to improve the environment further still. Most of their range is Organic and Vegan, bypassing pesticides in favour of natural methods & substituting traditional fining agents such as gelatine with bentonite & vegetable proteins.
Regardless of their eco warrior status, the area is also influenced by its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, with 300-400 mm/year of rainfall and plenty of sunlight (2,500 – 3,000 hours per year). Causing stress to the vines which gives them their unique character. Leading to structured wines, with intense colour & huge aromatic potential.
Their wine is a true reflection of team spirit, eco responsibility & constant innovations.
Selecting their best organic grapes, Monastrell & Merlot are kept separate to extract a typical quality from each. The Merlot lends aromas of pepper, black fruits & a truffle influence. Whilst Monastrell lends the quality of it’s Mediterranean climate, making the wine softer yet fruit forward. The third variety is Alicante Bouschet (also called Garnacha Tintorera). To achieve the maximum freshness and flavour from the grapes, they are harvested very early in the morning.
Specially selected yeasts are used. The skins & pips are macerated at a very low temperature for a short time, so that excessive tannins do not appear. The result is a red wine of a beautiful ruby colour & intense fruit aromas, with very ripe soft tannins.
Vibrant red colour shows youth, together with a brilliant violet border. Notes of red & black fruits mixed with sweet aromas of flowers intermingled. Round & warm, easy drinker, with a lingering finish.
