Padro & Co Vermouth Blanco Reserva
This vermouth was inspired by a desire to make a vermouth enhanced with the Mediterranean citrus aromas that are so intrinsic to the area around their winery. 75cl bottle
We blend an infusion of aromatic herbs with the peel of several different citrus fruits. After several months of maceration, we add an aged white mistela (sweet wine) that we keep especially for this vermouth.
Nose: Aromatically intense and very pleasant. Memories of sweet herbs such as star anise, lemon verbena, quina and angelica. Both well-balanced and complex.
Mouth: An elegant, smooth, refined and well-rounded palate with a slight sweetness, and also a certain bitterness. An elegant and citrus fruit finish ensures freshness and a superb aftertaste giving this vermouth a gourmet touch.
Vermouth made from a unique infusion of aromatic herbs and aged in the barrel before bottling at the winery.
The wine-making origins of the Padró family date back to the year 1886 and to the village of Bràfim (Tarragona), which was, at the time a busy agricultural hub with around 400 inhabitants.
The very first sales were of wines and liqueur wines loaded onto carts in large but basic barrels and sold directly from there by the first generation of wine-making Padros: Daniel Padró Porta (1846-1890) and his wife Rosa Valldosera. At the time, they ran a fairly humble establishment with just one press and a small amount of distillery equipment for making spirits and anise liqueurs.
The fifth generation, currently in charge of the winery, are following the same philosophy as their ancestors and producing quality bulk and bottled wine, liqueur wines and vermouths and have taken care to make sure their company keeps up with the times as regards modern wine-making processes and technology (tangential filtration, continuous tartaric stabilization and so on…) at their bottling plant as well as extending the Padró family vineyards and implementing a new grape reception and wine storage facility.
