  • Region

    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. .

  • Tasting Notes

    The wine is bright yellow in colour with subtle golden reflections. On the nose are aromas of pineapple, peaches and citrus peel, combined with floral notes and fennel seed. The palate is well-balanced with subtle acidity, juicy fruit and a fresh finish.

  • Food Pairing

    A perfect companion to light appetizers, steamed fish with vegetables seasoned and garnished with fresh local herbs and spiced with orange segments.

    12,5º

  • Best Served

    Best served chilled (8-10ºC)

  • Technical Information

    Techniques including night-time harvesting and cooled fermentation have led to the delicate and youthful, aromatic freshness of the wines being preserved. We carry out our harvest at night due to the guaranteed temperatures needed to optimise the characters of the Verdejo variety. This is followed by maceration with the skins at a low temperature. The 20-day fermentation process then takes place at 14-16 º C in order to obtain the maximum amount of freshness and aromas.
