Rasgo

CARABAL RASGO, a fruity and fun wine. It is a wine with lively, intense red and purple reflections, as it should be for a wine of short aging in barrel. Strong scent and red fruit, berries and fruits of the forest, combined with slight memories of clean wood, obtained from its brief stay in oak barrels. Kind despite its intensity, it leaves a rich and intense final memory.

In this wine, both the label and the name, represent the features(Rasgos) of the land and the natural beauty of its region.

General characteristics: Red wine, aged from 4 to 6 months in French oak barrels, and blended with the varieties Tempranillo and Syrah.

About us

Company details

The estate of El Carabal is located within the natural area of “Las Villuercas”. Its geological diversity and its natural and cultural wealth have provided the region numerous areas of special interest, allowing our vineyards and winery the privilege of belonging to this exceptional natural system.
The project of “Carabal: Vineyards and Winery” was born as a challenge aiming to restore winegrowing in the estate, interrupted for decades, by setting up a modern and innovative project to elaborate quality wines in a land which is initially perceived as unkind for this endeavor.

And so, the initiative to produce three quality wines is born on a land with poor soil, low in nutrients, lack of calcium and an extremely acidic pH, and in a very dry climate with hot summers, cold winters and scarce rainfall. From the very beginning this setting has marked the design of the vineyard lay out and of its planting patterns as well as of the winery.

Between 2003 and 2006, 140 acres (55 ha) were planted with vineyards. Different varieties of vines, clones, rootstocks, planting patterns and vine training systems resulted in a genuine field experiment with 35 separate plots. At the same time, the vineyard is divided into three zones; each one of them intended to make each one of the three wines.

Among the varieties planted we can find Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Graciano, Petit Verdot as well as a number of experimental varieties. Long cycle vines were included seeking to achieve long and full ripening thanks to a singular handling of both vegetative growth and water supply.

The winery is an outstanding building of architectural and artistic interest, of straight modern lines and perfectly integrated within the surrounding environment.   The whole area of 92,000 square feet (8,500 m2) includes facilities for the entire process of wine elaboration and ageing as well as social areas for clients and other visitors.

The winery has a total production capacity of 105,000 gallons (400,000 liters) of wine and has been designed to produce the three different types of Carabal wine: One with a short aging in oak barrels, fruity and a bit oaky. A second wine, more serious and complex in nature, is aged longer in wood. Finally, a third wine produced only out of the best vintages.

Carabal Vineyards and Winery, proud of its roots, has represented the most relevant aspects of this region through the image of the wines. All of this while respecting the innovative, modern and amusing spirit of Carabal.
