Grapes Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell
Denominacion de Origen Protegida Valencia is situated near the Mediterranean coast in the east of the country, at an altitude between 250 and 1000 meters. The climate is warm with a strong influence from the Mediterranean Sea. For centuries vines have been grown on the chalky, clay soils which, in combination with long hours of sunshine, produce fruity wines that are well structured with ripe tannins.
Careful selection of the best grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell. The grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. Each variety is vinified separately in stainless steel tank. Cold maceration at a temperature between 12 and 14 degrees. Temperature controlled fermentation at 26 degrees, guaranteeing that the primary aromas are maintained. Following the malolactic fermentation the wines are blended, cold stabilized and filtered before bottling. Aged for 4 months in French oak casks.
Tasting: The wine is bright ruby red. Intense aromas of ripe berries with the attractive, spicy tones of the Cabernet Sauvignon and toasted oak. Taste is fruity, juicy and smooth and toasted flavour on the finish. This full-bodied wine is delicious with meat dishes, pasta and cheese.
