About Hacienda La Parrilla
El Pinto is a collaboration between Les Caves de Pyrene and Hacienda La Parrilla. The idea behind this project is to create excellent value wines from sustainably grown grapes, as naturally as possible; wines that will identify with the characteristics of the area.
The vineyards are part of a 500-ha estate in the San Jose del Valle, inland, 35 km south-east of Jerez, in beautiful countryside close to the Sierra de Cadiz. The estate is made up of old olive trees, vineyards (17ha), pasture (where Iberico pigs roam free) and other crops. Owned by the Rebuelta González brothers, who built the winery in an old olive mill, within their charming ranch house which dates to 1881.
The wine is bright golden yellow, aromatically suggestive of dried apples and yellow cherries, has bonny acidity, chalky minerality and the requisite saline lick on the finish.
