Viticulture: Organic Farmed / Natural Winemaking
Vinification: Grapes are manually harvested. Spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation takes place. Unfined, unfiltered with only a small amount of sulphur added before bottling.
Fresh and crisp with lots of apple and citrus. Plenty of minerality and floral notes.
El Pinto is a collaboration between Les Caves de Pyrene and Hacienda La Parrilla. The idea behind this project is to create excellent value wines, from sustainably grown grapes, as naturally as possible, wines that will identified with the characteristic of the area. The vineyards are part of a 500-ha estate in the San Jose del Valle, inland, 35km south east of Jerez, in beautiful countryside close to the Sierra de Cadiz. Made up of old olive trees, vineyards (17ha), pasture (where Iberico pigs roam free) and other crops. Owned by the Rebuelta González brothers they built the winery in an old olive mill, within their charming ranch house which dates from 1881
