Bodegas Pinord Penedes Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Chateldon 2004

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/117421.Penedes is a region in north-east Spain between Barcelona and the coast that got DO status in 1960 although there has been viticulture here since at least the Romans. The region is well known for sparkling Cava wines but these now have their own DO.Bodegas Pinord is a large wine producer in this area.My bottle is made from cabernet sauvignon,one of the 'international' varieties rather than native Spanish grapes.The grapes were grown in the company's own vineyard of Muntanyans and the wine spent two years in oak barrels followed by a further three years of bottle aging before release.I started my bottle last night with my supper of pork steak.It is a fairly full bodied wine.There was plenty of a blackberry and bramble style fruit and a hint of spice and vanilla on the finish. The tannins were smooth and not intrusive and gave good structure.In short,this was a lovely wine that went well with the pork steaks

In 1942, José María Tetas set up the current winery in Vilafranca del Penedès, just four kilometres from the original estate. Having inherited the family methods and traditions, it has gradually grown until it has now become one of the most highly reputed wineries in the region and the whole country. At the present time, PINORD’s production facilities have an output capacity of over five million bottles per year. Nevertheless, traditional family standards are maintained and care is taken to avoid over production, something that generally results in a loss of quality. Two enologists and a laboratory with the most up-to-date analytical and quality control equipment ensure that the long-standing family tradition continues to be compatible with today’s most demanding quality, production and health controls demonstrating that traditional methods are not necessarily at variance with the implementation of the most rigorous standards. The early wines soon began to win a name and prestige for themselves as a result of their high quality. Since then, generation after generation, year after year, the family’s vineyards have continued to expand, the local varieties have considerably improved and the family name has become inseparably linked to the wine of El Penedès. The Bodegas Pinord vineyards are situated just a few miles from Vilafranca. We are proud to be able to say that they are grouped round the Muntanyans Hermitage standing on a hill from which you can see a large part of El Penedès. Read less
