Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietal

100% Tempranillo.

Colour

Bright ruby red with cherry red reflexes in the glass.

Aroma

Rich red tones, ripe fruits with echoes of vanilla, spices and dark berries on the nose.

Palate

The tannin is pleasant on the palate, presenting itself first lightly, then becoming more full-bodied and meatier. A harmonious, lingering aftertaste.

Food Matching

It is the ideal accompaniment for grills, poultry, game and Manchego cheese. Ideally, it is served at around 16°/ 17° C. Its ageing potential is a further six to eight years.

Reserva

A wine in the Reserva age category must be aged for at least 36 months in barriques and/or in bottles; 12 months of this must be in an oak barrel. A wine classified as a Reserva can therefore only be sold in the fourth year after the harvest.

Winemaking Note

Through gentle maceration and constant remounting, expressive tannic compounds are optimised. Following fermentation at a controlled temperature the wine is aged in American oak barrel s for twelve months. It then rests quietly in bottle for another 2 to 3 years to ensure a complete harmonised maturation is achieved.

Winery Profile

Denomiacion de Origen (D.O.) Valdepeñas

The Valley of the Stones – Val de Peñas – is at the southern end of La Mancha, the enormous high plateau which is the world’s largest wine growing region. Landscapes there are dominated by vineyards, cereal crops, olive groves and sheep. In the town of the same name, Valdepeñas, everything still revolves around wine. The town is also the centre of the world-famous Manchego cheese.

An extreme continental climate with cold winters and long, hot summers and up to 2,800 hours of sun per year enables special wines to grow. In chalky, sandy and clay soils, it is mainly red wines such as Cencibel - better known as Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha – that grow. To a limited extent, there are also white wines such as Arién and Macabeo.

There Felix Solis produces wines for the lines Albali and Los Molinos, and the wines Diego de Almagro, Soldepeñas, Peñasol, Consigna, Marques de Bataneros and Sangria Peñasol. In Valdepeñas, Pagos del Rey produces the wines in the Valdepeñas line.
