In stock
Winemaker Notes “Majuelo is a traditional Castilian word used by our grandparents to refer to vineyards, usually small, distributed strains irregularly and always on marginal, poor land.
From here comes the idea of making this wine, from a selection of Tinto Fino in gravel soils, which are marginal and very poor soils, with a little vigor, achieving a perfect balance giving very fine and elegant wines, with a long journey in time.
This wine transported us to our childhood, when all the grandchildren helped our grandmother Daría in the vintage of her Majuelos in Sotillo de la Ribera.”

Tasting Notes
Violet cherry color well covered. The nose is complex and very aromatic. Great elegance which include notes of plum, blueberry, blackberry, pepper, thyme, cocoa powder, fine leather, leaves, aromatic woods. The mid-palate is very juicy, large, fresh and of great structure and balance, sensations of red and black fruit, floral, underbrush, cinnamon, nutmeg, pastry notes. Long finish primary, dairy and spicy.

Bodegas Felix Callejo is a family winery founded in 1989 by Félix Callejo. It's the second generation, Cristina, José Félix, Beatriz and Noelia Callejo who continue this exciting legacy. The experiences in other wineries of both José Félix (Petrus - France, 1999; Torres - Chile, 2000) and Noelia (Araujo - Napa, 2007 and 2010; Cobos - Mendoza, 2008) provided the basis for further developing a philosophy dump on the soil and to be Vignerons.
In the year 2000, they began to work in an ecological way in their vineyards, a clean, respectful viticulture, full of life for the soils and therefore for their wines.
This step, made them and makes them return to the past to be able to look to the future. Observe their surroundings, the landscape that surrounds them, the culture that they have acquired thanks to their ancestors always linked to the world of wine and the authenticity of the land.
