  • 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.

  • Technical Information

    Strict controls on ripening are respected in order to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness, acidity and phenols. It is made using the traditional rosé method to ensure that it acquires its typical colour. The wine undergoes a short period of cold maceration that lasts for 8 to 10 hours. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 16°C and lasts for 10-12 days, resulting in a light, clean and fruity wine.
