A blend of seventy percent Tempranillo and thirty percent Shiraz partially aged in mature oak barrel.

The vast, high and dry plains of Castilla la Mancha comprise over 50% of Spain’s vineyards. The ancient soils and high altitude ensures the richly flavoured fruit maintains structure and tannin. Vineyards planted on the slopes of mountain ranges in the north and north east add a degree of  elegance to the wines.

Winemaking

A core of ripe and intensely flavoured Tempranillo was given a long and cool maceration in vats before maturation in stainless steel. A component of Tempranillo underwent Carbonic maceration to maximise fruit vibrancy. Shiraz added mid palate intensity and overall fruit weight. Finally a portion of Rioja Tempranillo aged in new American oak adds complexity and structure.

Tasting Notes

Bold and bright, with new world fruit richness matched by old world complexity and tannins. A deep, dark red colour is followed by a lifted nose packed with red berry and spice. The palate is impressively ripe and structured without a hint of greenness. A swirling array of flavours flow from initial supple red berries and liquorice to herbal notes and savoury complexity. Oak influences are in the background but provide structure and definition.
