Winemaker: Jorge Caus Pertegaz
Winery: La Vina
Colour: Bright and intensely vibrant red.
Nose: Generous fruit aromas of cherry and black berries.
Palate: Smooth and soft with red currant and black berry flavors. A long and supple finish with a touch of sweet spice.
Sensational with slow cooked pork or lamb and other meats from the grill. Can be matched with moderately spiced meals, such as Moroccan tagines or excellent with hearty vegetarian dishes and mature cheeses.
WINEMAKING & VINEYARDS
Spain’s other classic red varietal is now offered alongside the Tempranillo wines that have made Anciano a favourite around the world. Norrel Robertson MW has selected this stunning value wine from Valencia, on Spain’s Mediterranean coast.
Terres dels Alforins is a fertile valley in the south west of the province of Valencia and is called the “Valencian Tuscany”: a multitude of small plots between the sea and the “meseta” where vines have been tended since Roman times. Mostly non-irrigated vineyards with low yields. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks for 7 days at 22oC and then a portion of the wine is matured in oak barrels for 7 months.
Varieties: 100% Tempranillo
RS: 9 g/l
