El Seque 2020 Dulce

D.O Alicante









El Sequé Dulce is a fortified wine (very similar to the style of Vintage ports), made with Monastrell grapes in El Sequé, this group’s winery in the Valencian town of Pinoso, in the D.O. Alicante. In this area, where the Denomination of Origin was created in 1932, the winery has a total of 150 hectares of unirrigated land, where they mainly grow Monastrell (a variety native to the area that accounts for 75% of production). Here, the tradition that was started by Romans and Iberians is alive and well, with vines growing on sandy loam and sandy soils, with a texture that is especially favourable for vine cultivation, with its high porosity and permeability facilitating drainage and avoiding fungal diseases. The El Sequé Dulce vines grow at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level, with the unique feature of being at this altitude with a clay subsoil. This works together with the Mediterranean climate (mild, rainy winters and hot, sunny summers).

In terms of cultivation, current techniques are based on maintaining and passing on the experiences of their ancestors, focussing on passion and respect for the vineyard and avoiding industrial formulas. This philosophy begins in the vineyard, where they use organic and environmentally friendly agriculture, avoiding chemicals and phytosanitary products. The grapes are harvested by hand and only the best bunches are selected. In the winery, the El Sequé Dulce must is deposited in open tanks for cold maceration for 48 hours. This helps to extract both aroma and colour. After that, fermentation begins and lasts 3-4 days. After this, although the yeasts continue their work, fortifying spirit is added. This process, known as capping, will stop the yeast activity, leaving a residual sugar in the wine. Finally, El Sequé Dulce ages for 12 months in 500-litre French oak barrels.
The last bastion of tradition and purity.
