VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION
This excellent wine embodies everything that the connoisseur of elegant, traditional Spanish wine loves. Made in the winery of Bodegas Navalon in the small DO Valdepeñas, located in the heart of Spain. The Bodega has been the passion of the same local family for several generations, and specialises in producing classic, oak-aged Spanish red wines that are only released when they have reached the peak of perfection.
Hand picked, perfectly ripe Tempranillo grapes were harvested from rocky vineyards at the start of September. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days at controlled temperatures between 24-28oC and was bottled after a short time in contact with oak, to keep the wine young, fresh and vibrant.
