Bodega Pago de Aylés is a privately owned estate in the parched hills on the NE boundary of the Cariñena DO, one of the oldest viticultural zones in Spain. The vineyards surrounding the Mudéjar-styled bodega are planted on poor, rocky, calcareous soils between 600-800m above sea level and they produce more distinctive, fresher wines than those on the plains below. The area has a harsh continental climate and Garnacha is perfectly suited to the uncompromising environmental conditions. Half this blend has spent 4 months in French and American oak to add complexity and length, with the balance matured in stainless steel to preserve its vibrant fruit. The result is a medium-bodied red with juicy berry fruit, garrigue notes, integrated oak, smooth tannins and balanced alcohol.
The fabulous 3.000 Tres de Ayles, a blend of Garnacha, Cabernet and Merlot. The wine has had plenty of time to resolve and develop really fine complex aromas, smoky cassis and black fruit with sweets spice.
