Colección Privada, the best of the best, assembled to perfection. A cherry red coloured wine with youthful tones. Complex nose with floral notes, mineral spice, balsamic hints and berries. On the palate it proves powerful, full-bodied, very tasty and well balanced with a great personality. It offers a long and complex finish: the aftertaste brings back the fruit and minerals, joined by black chocolate, toffee and toasted nuances.

The different varieties for the Colección Privada are vinified separately, then aged in selected new French oak barrels. Now the blending starts and it will be adjusted in order to reach a perfect balance. This pursuit lasts for 18-20 months and only the best vintages are released. Only the bottles from the selected barrels, the winners, will make their way to the wine rack and then to the market. Colección Privada aims at the highest in the wine world. Production: 4,000 bottles/year

Dehesa del Carrizal

Dehesa del Carrizal estate is placed in the middle of the Montes de Toledo, near the Cabañeros National Park, between Tajo and Guadiana basins.

Dehesa del Carrizal is a Vino de Pago, the highest category according to Spanish wine law. It is a DOP (Denominación de Origen Protegida – Protected Designation of Origin) reserved for those few wineries and vineyards which carry out the whole process –from the grape to the bottle– within the limits of the Pago or estate. The unique location, soil and climate are the key to obtaining exceptional wines.

Winery Dehesa del Carrizal

According to the Vineyard and Wine Act 24/2003 of July 10th, a pago is “a rural site with particular edaphic and microclimate characteristics which differentiate it from its environment and where wines of singular features and qualities are obtained. Besides, the grape production, the winemaking and the bottling must take place within the pago strictly following the production rules stated by the specific ministerial decree for each pago”.

It defines the exact production process for each of the wines to be approved by the regional and the national authorities and finally by the European Union. Therefore, the pago has the same rank as the Consejo Regulador or regional governing body.

Production

The whole production takes place in the estate under strict quality control standards. It consists of several stages: harvest, transport, cooling, selection and fermentation. The entire process is carried out with the greatest care so that the grape remains intact, ensuring the quality from the vineyard to the deposit.

Aging

After fermentation, our wines are ready to be placed in our stock of French oak barrels. They are made by different coopers and possess different toasting levels according to each wine’s individual requirements. There they rest and continue to take shape.

Barrel storage aims at aromatic finesse and tannin power, our wines’ natural allies. Humidity and temperature conditions are always kept under control. Winter cold favours the precipitation of the more unstable components of the wine, while higher summer temperatures accelerate the chemical reactions and allow for the wine to evolve in softness. Every 3 or 4 months we carry out the decanting: we carefully transfer the wine to a different barrel in order to separate the lees sediment from the clean wine. This way the wine gains a significant limpidity by means of a natural decanting process.  At Dehesa del Carrizal, a third of our barrel stock is renewed every year.

Assemblage

The different lots fuse together into something superior to the sum of the components. This will take place after the wine is poured into the barrels. Nevertheless, we think about it ever since we start tasting the lots coming from different allotments. Each variety and/or each allotment contributes its distinctive feature, eventually creating a highly complex and extremely balanced wine.
