The best grapes from the vineyards of the “Valle de las Piedras” are ripened under the sunshine of this region of central Spain. The Shiraz varietal has a long growing season and is well suited to all types of climate; ideal for growing in La Mancha.
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.
Intense raspberry colour, with aromas of violet, plum and black berries. The palate has flavours of plum jam, currants and blackberry, with a long finish.
This wine is perfect to pair with cheeses and sausages. Stews and roasts of pork or lamb would also work well.
Best served between 15 and 17ºC.
Strict controls on ripening are respected in order to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The wine undergoes a period of cold maceration that usually lasts for 2 or 3 days. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rises above 25°C.
