Pardevalles Gamonal Prieto Picudo 2018

Tasting Notes

A unique nose with red cherry and pomegranate mixing with vanilla and some sweet wood notes. The palate has a fine tannin structure and juicy acidity with crushed rock minerality. The fruit on the palate delivers red plum, dusty cocoa and some wet clay.


The estate was founded in 1949 by Rafael Alonso. Pardevalles estate is operated by the second and third generations presently. Located in the village of Valdevimbre Leon, near the Camino de Santiago, the winery has modern facilities with historical elements. It was the first in the region to utilize conical stainless steel tanks and system temperature control during fermentation. The indigenous varietal used to make this wine is one of two that the Pardevalles Estate focuses its efforts on. The Estate is sustainably managed with 38 hectares of vineyard planted with only Prieto Picudo and Albarín Blanco.

The vineyards are based on poor, rocky, quaternary soils with many large rounded stones which absorb the heat of the sun during the day. These large stones help the plant to manage the low temperatures at night as well as to improve the warmth for ripening the grapes. The climate is continental, with a high elevation for the vineyard, with marked differences between temperatures and sharp thermal contrasts between the day and the night.

This wine is aged in the historic 300-year-old subterranean cave where the wine ages naturally. The cellar/cave maintains a constant temperature of 12 ºC and a humidity of 75% all year round. The barrel room is made up of 125 barrels made of French and American oak. The grapes for this wine are hand picked, and aged for 12 months in 60% French oak, and 40% American oak barrels.
