Expert Reviews

85% Tempranillo grapes and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, a Gran Reserva, it’s their highest quality wine as the wine must be aged for 24 months in oak barrels and in bottle for three years before sale. Complex aromas include dark chocolate sauce, leather, cocoa and black spice spices with the chocolate sauce aromas dominating. The fruit is smooth and elegant on the palate with above average tannic intensity and a long finish. Robert Geddes MW (DEC/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

This wine is made from 85% Tempranillo grapes and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that come from a limited harvest. The grapes are picked by hand in the cool of night, in the way to save the high temperatures that are registered during the day.

Aroma

Intensely aromatic with complex notes of leather, cocoa and spices.

Palate

Rich and smooth on the palate with above average tannic intensity and a long finish.

Serving Suggestion

We recommend this wine is served in a fine crystal glass half an hour after opening. Ideal with red meats and stews. Serve at room temperature. Store horizontally in a cool, dry place away from vibrations.

Gran Reserva

A wine in the Gran Reserva age category must be aged for at least 60 months in oak barrels and in bottles; 24 months of this must be in the oak barrel. A wine classified as a Gran Reserva can therefore only be sold in the sixth year after the harvest.

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.
