Tasting Notes:

".. The 2016 is Merlot-based with 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and, waving the flag for Spanish varieties, 12% Tempranillo. In fact, there’s nothing unusual about French grapes in Somontano, a region in the Pyrenean foothills heading for the French border. The people behind it are Tom and Emma Holt, who met in Shrewsbury when they were both working for Tanners Wines, then settled in northern Spain after working in New Zealand and Canada, among other countries. The choice of name, 'first steps', is obvious, although they've now reached their fourth vintage, counting the one currently fermenting, and the wren on the ladder was chosen because it’s a bird common to both Somontano and Shrewsbury. Food? Think wintery casseroles and bakes, whether vegetarian or meat, a juicy rump steak or meaty, spiced sausages." Joanna Simon, www.joannasimon.com, 5th October 2017

Tasting Notes:

As wine-maker Tom Holt explains.. "While working on the 2015 Paso-Primero wines we noticed that the year had been particularly good for some of our Cabernet-Sauvignon vines. So good in fact that we wanted to make a single varietal wine to show off the best that 2015 had to offer. As the year progressed we become more and more excited and felt that we had a pretty unique wine on our hands. We wanted to celebrate this special addition to the Paso-Primero family by giving it a special label. The idea of collaborating with an artist to create a piece of artwork just for Paso-Prima started to take hold and we began thinking of who would fit the project. We didn't have to look for long! As soon as we had met Lyn Evans she immediately understood what we were trying to do and set about capturing the essence of what we had achieved. In her own unique style she has showcased exactly what Paso-Prima means to us - a hand-crafted, one-off."

Paso-Prima 2015 is a big, rounded red with soft, plush fruit and a long, deep finish. Made from 100% Cabernet-Sauvignon it  has structure and complexity but this is all balanced out by the classic fruit-forward Paso-Primero style that makes for easy drinking for such a big, concentrated wine.

Paso Primero

They explored new regions by working in local wineries, continually gaining practical experience as they worked hard to unlock the secrets of quality wine production.  The eureka moment was a chance discovery of a small parcel of vines whilst working in Somontano, just south of the Pyrenees in Northern Spain.

With this new found land and the ambition to produce a wine, which reflected their passion for sustainable, balanced wines.
Paso-Primero was born with the 2014 vintage, straight out the gate with a fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon led blend, so harmonious, succulent, authentic - it quick attracted the attention of the wine press, including pleasing reviews in the Telegraph and The Guardian here in the UK.

These are exciting times for the Holts as they continue to raise the bar for what can be done with intuitive, quality-minded wine making in this exciting region.
