More information

The grapes for  the Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva by Jean Leon grow in the beautiful Spanish cultivation area DO Penedès in the single location Vinya Palau. 

In the glass, this wine shines in a rich purple with ruby red highlights. In the fragrant bouquet, aromas of red berries and juicy cherries - notes of cherry jam also emerge - merge with delicate notes of vanilla and fine spicy-herby hints. First, this Spanish red wine is slim and silky on the palate, before this wine presents its dense, powerful personality with aromas of cherry and spice. The gentle tannins harmonize wonderfully with the sweet fruit and the fresh acidity. The oak wood is elegantly integrated and accompanies the long finale with a spicy touch. 

Vinification of Jean Leon Vinya Palau Merlot Reserva

The Merlot grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness and immediately brought to Jean Leon's winery. There, the berries are carefully destemmed and fermented in a temperature-controlled manner in the stainless steel tank. After completion of the fermentation process, this wine is aged in French oak barriques for a total of 12 months. After that, this red wine matures for  a certain time on the bottle.
