Establecimiento Juanicó winery is one of the oldest and biggest in Uruguay, with the estate first established in 1740 and making wine from the 1830s onwards with a historic cellar built in the same period. Establecimiento Juanicó’s wine production is also one of the furthest-reaching – you will find in most restaurants in Uruguay under their Don Pascual brand and in top restaurants worldwide with the Familia Deicas brand, owned by the same family.
Cold pre-fermentation maceration from 3 to 5 days. Intense macerations until halfway through the alcoholic fermentation. 30% of the wine is then aged in second use oak barrels from 4 to 6 months.
Deep straw colour with touches of green. A rich stone fruit nose with aromas of peach, apricot and nectarine. Balanced by a crisp and mineral acidity.
