Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A bright, intensive ruby red in the glass with terra cotta coloured reflexes.

Aroma

On the nose the wine is complex and elegant, with spicy aromas and a hint of leather through its finish, as well as lovely ripe fruit.

Palate

On the palate the wine presents soft, pleasant tannins, it is balanced, rounded and expressive.

Food Matching

As an accompaniment with any type of meat, stews and mature cheeses. This wine is ideally decanted before being enjoyed, and served at a temperature of 18° - 20° C. As it has a strong tannin framework, it has excellent storage potential.

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

After the harvest, the fermentation on the skin process was longer than usual in order to emphasise the structure and great depth of this wine. The aim here was also to prepare the wine for a long ageing process. In all, the wine spent six years being finished - some of this time in American oak and, to round it off, it was left to rest in the bottle for a while before being sold.

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.
