Only the very best Tempranillo grapes are selected to create this sophisticated wine that is full of the luscious notes of vanilla and spices.
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.
Deep ruby red in colour with ripe cherry hues. On the nose, the wine has powerful black fruit aromas, vanilla and spices. Pleasant and soft on the palate with a good tannic expression and a lovely long finish. Best consumed from 5 to 6 years.
Ideal to serve with any grilled meat, game, fowl and cheese.
Between 16-17 ºC
The grapes are carefully selected and fermented at a controlled temperature to ensure the optimum maximum aromatic potential before further post ferment maceration time to develop its characteristic colour, flavours and tannins. Finally the wine is aged for 6 months in American oak barrels before bottling. The bottles are then aged for 2 years.
