Consigna Shiraz is made from Shiraz grapes. This international grape variety is perfectly adapted to the Tierra de Castilla region. The grapes reach their perfect ripeness level thanks to the essential heat of the day and the low night temperatures.
Like France’s Vins de Pays, Vino de la Tierra de Castilla is a Spanish geographic indicator for wines from the autonomous region of Castilla-La Mancha. This is a region at an altitude of 700m covered with limestone and argillaceous soils that endure scarce rain falls.
Rich cherry red in colour with aromas of violet, plum and black fruits. A smooth palate with cherry and blackcurrant flavours and pleasant tannins.
A perfect accompaniment to rice, pork and lamb dishes.
The ripening process of the grapes is strictly controlled while on the fields to determine the optimum harvesting moment that yields grapes with a perfect balance of sugar content and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period for 3 or 4 days. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rises above 25oC for 6 to 8 days. The result is an elegant, well-structured wine that is designed to be consumed young.
