Fermented in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts and 50% stems. Aged for 12 months in 225 and 500 litre French oak barrels.
The César Márquez winery was created in 2015 by this winemaker who comes from a great lineage of winemakers, as his family owns the renowned Castro Ventosa winery, and his uncle Rául Pérez has been awarded twice as the best winemaker in the world.
In an effort to ensure that his wines reflect the terroir and their origins, César farms in an artisanal way, and makes his wines organically, with minimal intervention, avoiding the use of sulphites.
César Márquez wine is made from various grape varieties such as Mencía and Alicante Bouschet, among others, which are cultivated organically and traditionally, without the use of chemical products.
Then, each plot is worked separately, 50% of the grapes are destemmed and pressed with the feet. The grapes are vinified separately with 50% stemmed. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place in open French oak barrels as well as in small stainless steel tanks, then it is aged one year in barrel and bottled unfiltered.
This plum red wine has a fruity taste with floral notes. In the mouth it feels fresh and fluid. It is an elegant wine with good acidity, smoky and toasted touches, as well as a saline finish.
The Parajes wine by César Márquez is very smooth, although it has ripe tannins, and it is a very deep and fleshy wine that can evolve very well in the next 4 years.
