Ayrum is born to give a new “air” to traditional wine making. With the maximum respect to grapes, technology and expertise result in 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.
Brilliant, shining bright cherry red in colour with a subtle purple sheen. The nose is intense and very inviting with aromas of cherries, raspberries and red currants. The palate mirrors these aromas and is well balanced with a good structure, lively acidity and a medium-long finish. An incredibly refreshing and juicy wine.
One to sip before dinner with nibbles in hand or a good companion to fish, grilled and fried seafood or steak. It is also a great picnic wine; partnering well with ham, chicken or roast beef sandwiches and potato or egg salad.
Best served cold (7- 9º C)
The grapes undergo controlled cold maceration, prior to fermentation, which allows the skins to remain in contact with the must until the wine acquires its characteristic rosé colour. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperatures between 14-16 °C in order to get powerful and fruity wine.
