Special wine from Ribera del Duero.

Viña Pedrosa Crianza is the result of passion and patience, it has the temperament and personality of its producers.
The most representative wine of the winery and the one that best reflects the style and character of Viña Pedrosa.

It was 38 years ago this September when the three Pérez Pascuas brothers, Benjamín, Manuel and Adolfo, decided to embark on an ambitious project: to make one of the best wines in Spain. The brothers were fortunate to already have 60-year-old Tempranillo vines that had been planted by their father Mauro Pérez. Today the third generation of Pérez Pascuas brothers are involved in this well established family business.

The winery is situated on top of the hill just outside the village of Pedrosa del Duero, with panoramic views over the surrounding vineyards and countryside. This position at altitude is responsible for their overall micro-climate being cooler, with a considerable diurnal temperature differential. This makes for a lengthier growing season with the grapes hanging longer on the vine for slow ripening, meaning their harvest is often completed weeks after surrounding, lower lying vineyards. As of 2023, the estate has fully converted to organic.

The wines are judiciously matured in French oak casks to produce serious, multi-layered wines of great elegance and finesse. The Cepa Gavilán and Crianza offer medium to full-bodied, complex wines with flavours of chocolate, coffee and black olive tapenade, firm tannins and great life. The Cepa Gavilán is perfect as a lunch time red. The Reserva wines are made from 90% Tempranillo vines (which have an average age of 30 and 45 years respectively) and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Intense cherry red with purple edges. Suggestive and very expressive on the nose, the aromas of berries stand out along with delicate aromas of ageing (vanilla, balsamic, coffee, toffee and Indian ink). On the palate it is ample, with nerve and succulent tannins. Its flavours are very persistent and broad.
