Brilliant cherry red and very bright colours. Intense aroma, fresh, perfectly ripe fruit, cherry, spicy notes, a certain herbal and balsamic freshness, liquorice. In the mouth it’s fruity and extremely fresh with plenty of expression of a young wine, that’s very moreish.
This wine comes from a certified organic vineyard. Our vineyard is worked according to ecological guidelines through our own conviction.
The harvest is done by hand and at night in order to keep maximum freshness in the grape.
Our bottle labels are inspired by the work of pop artist Roy Lichtenstein.
Open your mind to CRASH! A serious wine not to be taken so seriously.

Produced by the Crash winery which is part of Pago los Balancines, the winery is situated in the Ribera de Guadiana (DO) area of Extremadura in south-west Spain. A unique place to grow grapes, it is nestled between two mountains at an altitude of 450 metres making the area the perfect location to cultivate the eclectic mix of well-known Spanish grape varietals and regional specialties used in the wines. Working in a sustainable way to benefit the environment and the local community, the Crash winery has a commitment to quality and only uses the best organic grapes, all of which are hand-picked and then expertly blended.
Crash wines take their distinctive name from the economic crash that occurred just before their launch.
The bottles come with 6 different labels, inspired on pop-art by Roy Lichtenstein. Every case of 6 bottles contains one of each label version.
You will receive a random label if you buy a single bottle instead of a case.
