Bodegas Mustiguillo 2015 'Finca Calvestra' Merseguera, El Terrerazo DO Pago, Spain

In the late 1990’s, Toni Sarrion began a one man crusade to save the  indigenous variety Bobal and coax it from obscurity and rusticity to the  forefront of truly world class wines.  Ever evolving and pushing the  quality level forward, Mustiguillo has moved away from the use of overt  American oak as seen in earlier vintages in favor of concrete and French  oak for wines of finesse & balance, realizing the potential of  Bobal from the unique terroir of El Terrerazo.   Mustiguillo was  recognized for their extraordinary efforts by Wine & Spirits as one  of the Top 100 Wineries of 2012.

Winemaker: Toni Sarrion 

Grapes: 100% Merseguera

Terroir: The Finca Calvastra vineyard is a tiny plot at 900  meters altitude, with 100+ year old vines co-mingled with ancient olive  trees.  The Merseguera, which favors the slow ripening conditions at  high altitude is one of very few plots and the only single vineyard of  this almost extinct variety.  The Vino de Pago El Terrerazo was granted to Mustiguillo in 2010 - a  part of the Grandes Pagos de España organization that is dedicated to  upholding and promoting very high quality single estate wines..  At an  altitude of 800-824 meters, the estate is comprised of 89 hectares of  contiguous vineyards on primarily limestone soils. The climate is Mediterranean with a strong continental influence with drastic diurnal  shifts in temperature and contrasting winds from the sea to the east and  hot La Mancha to the west.

Vinification; The wine is aged 12 months in French oak as well as acacia wood barrels.

Alcohol: 13%

Recognition / Awards: 91 VIN/90+ WA

Tasting Notes: A stunningly deep wine, with notes of meyer lemon, green tea and hints of fresh stone fruits. The palate if elegant and layered, bouncing between fresh citrus, accented by the depth and nuance of acacia wood, which brings texture and floral notes to the wine.
