We pamper the grapes, as it can only be done in a family owned winery, to get unique wines
Bodegas PAGOS DE MOGAR is a family owned winery focused in making fine wines in the region of the D.O. Ribera del Duero in Spain.
As our total annual production is only around 75.000 bottles, we can use in all our range of wines the techniques than bigger wineries only can use in their top wines.
This begins with the work in the vineyards, with low yields of around 5.000-6.000 kg/Ha,
manual harvest in boxes of 15 kg, and manual selection of all the grapes coming into the winery through a sorting table.
It is our youngest wine, but it is also a high-quality one, as it has been certified by the range of Gold and Silver medals received by the successive vintages of this wine.
The ROBLE is made with strict selection and maceration techniques, but using grapes from our youngest vines. Due to the manual selection of the grapes
our ROBLE is every vintage much more clean and intense in the nose, more expressive and personal, than similar wines made in bigger wineries.
The 6 months spent in American and French oak barrels provide the complexity of the ageing besides keeping outstanding aromas of fruit, as it corresponds to a young wine.
This wine is the most representative of the spirit of our winery. It is very elegant, full bodied and very well balanced, with outstanding personality,
perfect to lay down for years. It has received many awards in different competitions, standing out the GREAT GOLD MEDAL in the Zarcillo Awards 2013.
The VENDIMIA SELECCIONADA (SELECTED HARVEST) is elaborated with the best grapes, grown in vineyards older than 20 years.
The 12 months ageing in American and French barrels of very thin grain provide great complexity and elegancy in nose
and mouth, leading to a wine of outstanding personality. It lays down in bottle in the winery for at least one year,
to ensure that its tannins become rounded and ready to drink before going on sale.
This wine appeared in the market at the end of 2014 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our winery and from then on,
we bottle it only in outstanding vintages.
The COLECCION PRIVADA - RESERVA ESPECIAL is made with the grapes from selected plots, and it has spent at least 5 years ageing between barrel and bottle.
That leads to a really rounded and well-balanced wine of outstanding bouquet, but keeping a lively colour and fruity aromas, showing a perfect wine for long ageing.
