D.O. Valdepeñas / Los Molinos
Los Molinos Gran Reserva
Only the very best Tempranillo grapes are selected to create this sophisticated wine that is full of vanilla and notes of 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.
Produced from carefully selected vineyards and log barrel agening in our cellars, this wine has evolved into a delicious complex, mellow, rich and smooth aged red wine.
Red meats, game and strong cheeses.
The grapes are carefully selected and fermented at a controlled temperature (26-28ºC) 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 18 months in American oak barrels before bottling. The bottles are then aged in our cellar for 3 to 6 years.
