Ayrum has been born to give a new “air” to traditional wine making. With the maximum respect to indigenous varieties, technology and expertise have come together to give birth to a modern style of wine, suitable for international tastes.
Valdepeñas takes its name from the ancient city by the same name, that lies on a sun-baked river valley dotted by small rocky formations (Val-de-peñas - Valley of Rocks). Located in the South of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The area is almost entirely encircled by both La Mancha Denominación de Origen on the North border and Andalusia on its Southern limits. It experiences extreme weather conditions, with temperatures reaching up to over 40 ºC in the summer and dropping to as low as -10 ºC in the winter. The future of this Denominación de Origen lays with its red wines made from Tempranillo; a grape variety that enjoys the ability to age well as crianza, reserva and gran reserva.
Ruby red with a bright rim. An elegant bouquet with notes of vanilla and spices. A palate of sweet cherries and black fruits with subtle nuances of tobacco and coffee. A very soft wine with fine and sweet tannins, well-integrated acidity and a long finish.
An excellent accompaniment to grilled meats, game, Manchego cheese, roast lamb or rabbit in garlic stew.
Fermentation takes place under controlled temperature to dig out the whole of the aromatic potential of Tempranillo grapes. The wine is then aged in American oak barrels for 12 months and for another period of at least 2 years in the bottle.
