Bodegas Mustiguillo "Mestizaje" Pago El Terrerazo White 2020
In the late 1990’s, Toni Sarrion began a one man crusade to save the indigenous variety Bobal and coax it from obscurity and rusticity to the forefront of truly world class wines. The companion to the Mustiguillo Bobal, is this White Blend of the almost lost indigenous variety, Merseguera. Merseguera are grown organically at the estate at over 900 meters in altitude. These vines are grafted onto existing Bobal vines that are over 40 years old. Mustiguillo was recognized for their extraordinary efforts by Wine & Spirits as one of the Top 100 Wineries of 2012.
The Vino de Pago El Terrerazo status was granted to Mustiguillo in 2010, a part of the Grandes Pagos de España organization that is dedicated to upholding and promoting very high quality single estate wines. A designation of DO Pago is only applied to individual vineyard or wine estate that must meet strict requirements. There are currently 17 Pago estates in all of Spain.
At an altitude of 800-824 meters, the organic estate is comprised of 89 hectares of contiguous vineyards on primarily limestone soils. The climate is Mediterranean with a strong continental influence with drastic diurnal shifts in temperature and contrasting winds from the sea to the east and hot La Mancha to the west.
65% Merseguera, 24% Viognier & 11% Malvasia
