Vino de la Tierra de Castilla / Peñasol
The best grapes from the vineyards of the “Valle de las Piedras” ripen under the radiant sunshine of this region in central Spain. This wine is a Chardonnay varietal. A grape variety that has recently been introduced into this region in Spain with limestone and clay soils that perfectly suit its growing requirements.
Best served between 10 and 12ºC.
Like France’s Vins de Pays, Vino de la Tierra de Castilla is a Spanish geographic indicator for wines from the autonomous region of Castilla-La Mancha. This is a region at an altitude of 700m covered with limestone and argillaceous soils that endure scarce rain falls.
Pale yellow with touches of gold. A wine with aromas of apple, peach, fennel and tropical fruits on a subtle mineral background. An elegant, clean and fresh wine.
Recommended for some particular starters or light dishes such as pasta, seafood and fresh cheese.
Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness level to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The wine undergoes a short period of cold maceration of around 6 hours. This is followed by the must fermentation at 18 ºC in stainless steel tanks for an average period of 10 days. Finally, the wine completes a short ageing period on lees for around two months.
