Pago de Larrainzar is more than a wine. It is the soul of our family and a tribute to the beautiful land that has belonged to our family for the last 150 years. Only a rigorous selection of our best grapes makes up this wine, which is full of elegance, character and complexity. Afer being harvested by hand, the diﬀerent varieties are fermented and
aged separately, using the best French oak barrels. Only then we create the fnal blend, to achieve a perfect balance, where the fruit always plays the leading role..
It has a nice red cherry color with purple hues that reveal amazing preservation and long life. Te nose shows a feature of Larrainzar wines, the character and personality of their wines.
Great complexity and nuance, with a whole range of forest fruits, pastries and cocoa notes, fne clean woods and scrubland on moist soil. Te palate is alive, tasty, with that great balance of fruit and mineral notes that appears in the nose. Te wine is sof, elegant, but it has a long and pleasant fnish, perfectly polished. A great vintage with a long life ahead
