Region

The area of Castilla-La Mancha, located in the central plateau of the Iberian Peninsula, is the world’s largest vineyard. Varietal wines are made with one type of grape. Airen and Tempranillo are the most characteristic grapes from this area, while other non-native grape varieties sucha as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Viura, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay have excellent results due to the climate and terrain in this region.

Tasting Notes

Lovely lemon yellow appearance. Fresh and zesty aromas. A palate full of citrus fruits and honeydew melon from the underlying richness and intensity of this classic grape variety.

Food Pairing

Enjoy chilled with roast chicken.

The wine undergoes a short period of cold maceration of around 6 hours. Fermentation takes place at 14-16ºC in stainless steel tanks for up to 12-15 days. It is followed by a short ageing period on lees to produce an elegant, fresh and fruity wine.
