The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are cultivated in old, low growing vineyards of 6 000 ha. Very cold winters and very hot summers characterise the extreme continental climate of the region.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Like France’s Vins de Pays, Vino de la Tierra de Castilla is a Spanish geographical indication for wines located in the autonomous region of Castile La Mancha. The limestone and argillaceous soils are at an altitude of 700 metres and rain fall is scarce.
Colour: Intense dark red. On the nose: Aromas of black and red fruits and a hint of green pepper. On the palate: Fruity with vegetable characteristics. This elegant and full bodied wine has good tannic structure and a long balanced finish.
This is a perfect wine to go with roast vegetables, pork and rice dishes, stew or roast lamb.
Its grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness level to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period for 2 or 3 days. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rises above 25°C for up to 6-8 days.
