The aim of Pago de Cirsus is to make 100 percent single-estate wines of the very highest quality. The 136 hectares of southernly orientated vineyards are planted with Tempra- nillo, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and small grain Muscat. Standing in their midst is a towering mansion and state-of-the-art winery that produces some of the most highly awarded wines in Spain and is set to be the next Vino de Pago D.O. estate in the country.
Located just outside the village of Ablitas in Navarra, its sloping topography and ochre-coloured clay found over most of the estate combined with its continental cli- mate, create the conditions that are regarded as optimum for growing vines. Further enhancing the quality, the average yield per hectare is intentionally reduced far below the ofIcial appellation’s limit in order to produce concentrated wines with deep colour, excellent fruit, and powerful structure.
