Padro Reserva Especial
Producer: Padro & CoVolume: 75clABV: 18%
The wine-making origins of the Padró family date back to the year 1886 and to the village of Bràfim (Tarragona), which was, at the time a busy agricultural hub with around 400 inhabitants.
The fifth generation, currently in charge of the winery, are following the same philosophy as their ancestors and producing quality bulk and bottled wine, liqueur wines and vermouths and have taken care to make sure their company keeps up with the times as regards modern wine-making processes and technology (tangential filtration, continuous tartaric stabilization and so on…) at their bottling plant as well as extending the Padró family vineyards and implementing a new grape reception and wine storage facility.
Padro & Co wanted to make a vermouth using a sweet Tarragona Clásico-style liqueur wine aged for 5 years in 7,000-litre oak vats and which they have been using at the winery for generations. They add a small amount of this wine to the solera wine in the final vermouth coupage together with their special touch of vermouth herbs.
Intense and striking. Powerful aromas from the prolonged ageing: dried figs, roasted hazelnuts and green walnuts.
Warm and rich at the beginning, giving way to liquorice and medicinal herbs, encased in sweet notes, and a bitter tang.
