Hipperia is a classic Bordeaux cuvée (Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet franc and Petit verdot) made in the Montes de Toledo.

Robert Parker: Bordeaux blend with plenty of alcohol and oomph, powerful and generously oaked
I found better balance and more harmony in the 2016 Hipperia, where the blend was 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. But it's a round, lush and Mediterranean Bordeaux blend with plenty of alcohol and oomph, powerful and generously oaked, for those that like that style of reds. 23,400 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2018.

James Suckling: Impressive
Impressive, fresh ripe summer berries with cedary-oak notes also in the mix. The palate has a very slick, sweet and fine core of silky, velvety tannin and it delivers a lot of fruit on the finish. Drink or hold.

INTENSE, PROFOUND AND ELEGANT

Hipperia is a novel wine that expresses aromas and flavours of fully mature red berry fruits. It is the fruit of evolution and experience acquired over the last 15 years. To a base of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot we add the elegance of Cabernet Franc and the power of the Petit Verdot. Hipperia 2005 was the first wine brand developed in our new winery, which has excellent facilities for the elaboration of high quality wines. The result is a wine born from a balanced blend of these four varieties, each of their essences working to create a unique harmony. The scents and fresh, balsamic aromas of Pago?s wine highlight its power, maturity and mineral richness.

Tasting Notes:
From elegant cherry colour, good aromatic intensity where notes of mineral and balsamic, thyme and rosemary, excels along with red fruits, and a background of fine notes of wood. Silky entry in palate, round, structured, again fruity and balsamic notes and ending with a subtle toasted that induces to drink. It is a very long and persistent wine.

Pago de Vallegarcia

The philosophy of the cellar is to produce very high quality wines from grapes grown in the surrounding vineyards, with a balanced composition, harvested by hand at the optimum moment of ripeness and with the capacity of aging both in the barrel and the bottle. As for the design of the wines, we aim to create wines which respect the individuality of the grape varieties and the expression of the terroir in each of our wines.

THE WINEMAKING PROCESS

Vallegarcía is, probably, one of the best equipped and most modern wineries in Spain. The fermentation area has 24 tanks, all them stainless-steel and double jacketed for temperature control during the fermentation process, and also a top of the range pneumatic press. The crushed grapes bursting with must enter the steel tanks where they are chilled to 8ºC and remain there for a certain time, between 72 and 96 hours, this is called pre-fermentation cold maceration and during this process the fresh fruit aromas are extracted from the grapes. Afterwards the fermentation begins and over a period of 21 days the must slowly turns into wine and, by pumping juice over the fermentation cap, more aromas, more colour and the structure that the polyphenols in the grape skins give to the wine are extracted. At the end of the fermentation process the pomace is pressed and the wine is put into barrels.
