Bodegas 1890 is named after the year García Carrión was founded. Its wines are fruit of the labor of five generations who over the years have passed down the most beneficial cultural practices and in turn adapted the best grape varieties to the lands of Jumilla (Murcia), a region blessed by its contrasts of mountains and valleys. The predominant varietal is Monastrell, a noble varietal extremely well adapted to low rainfall, of exceptional quality, with high concentration of tannins and polyphenols. Along with this traditional varietal, the winery has cultivated others of high prestige, such as Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Careful production at the winery keeps this natural quality intact and improves on it during the fermentation processes. The wine is aged in American and French oak barrels. The reserve wines will remain at least three years the aging warehouses, between oak barrels and bottles.
Each varietal is prepared separately and only after each wine is finished do we decide what percentage of each one to add to the final blend.
The Monastrell grapes come from older vineyards with very low yield in dry areas, so the grapes arrive somewhat raisined with higher concentrations of sugars, providing the wine with a sweet taste and higher alcohol content. The resulting wine has finished consuming all of the sugars and is semisweet.
The other varietals undergo normal vinification in stainless steel tanks with temperature control and continuous pumping.
Appearance: Very deep, dark and bright cherry color.
Aromas: Intense and attractive aromas of roasted coffee, plums and black fruit.
Palate: Feeling of fullness in the mouth, tasty, long, with smooth and round tannins and a persistent finish.
We recommend consuming Pata Negra Apasionado at a temperature of 16°C.
Perfect with grilled meats, spicy food, or just by the glass. Try it with an ounce of dark chocolate
