Valdepeñas takes its name from the ancient city by the same name, that lies on a sun-baked river valley dotted by small rocky formations (Val-de-peñas – Valley of Rocks). Located in the South of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The area is almost entirely encircled by both La Mancha Denominación de Origen on the North border and Andalusia on its Southern limits. It experiences extreme weather conditions, with temperatures reaching up to over 40 ºC in the summer and dropping to as low as -10 ºC in the winter. The future of this Denominación de Origen lays with its red wines made from Tempranillo; a grape variety that enjoys the ability to age well as crianza, reserva and gran reserva.
Bright and sparkling clean pink-red. Its nose is intense with inviting aromas of cherry and strawberry. The palate mirrors these aromas and is well balanced with a good structure, very refreshing and with a medium-long finish.
A good companion to fish, seafood or gazpacho and salmorejo, and soups.
The ripening process of the grapes is strictly controlled while on the fields to determine the optimum harvesting moment that yields grapes with a perfect balance of sugar content and acidity. The grapes, that come from 25-30-year-old vineyards, undergo cold maceration with skins to give the must its characteristic rosé colour. Fermentation takes place at 16-18 º C for 10 days, resulting in a light, clean and fruity wine.
