Bodega Maranones Picarana
Bodega Maranones Picarana

Albillo

Situated around 70km to the west of Madrid the vineyards at Bodega Maranones have the elevation and slopes to combat the scorching daytime temperatures below. Many of the vineyards are so steep that they must be plowed with mules as tractors can't reach them. Indeed Picarana is named for a species of bird that inhabits the highest parts of these hills, such as the vineyard 750m above sea level.

They are firm believers in organic viticulture and rolyculture in their farming (where other plants and wild flowers grow between the rows of vines to maintain a healty ecosystem.) 

White flowers, minerality with a touch of tropical fruits. The body on the wine is full and big enough to stand up to white meats.

Wow… This is my new favourite wine. White flowers, minerality with a touch of tropical fruits. The body on the wine is full and big enough to stand up to white meats.
