The vast, high and dry plains of Castilla la Mancha comprise over 50% of Spains 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. Deep red in colour with a ripe, expressive nose of berries, blood plums and smoked spice. The palate is rich and opulently fruited packed with dark berried Shiraz fruit matched by structured, savoury Tempranillo and framed by silky tannins. Impressively complex and well balanced, this wine will gain character and complexity in the cellar for up to five years.
