16 - 18 °C
The Denominación de Origen Protegida Valencia is situated near the Mediterranean coast in the east of the country, at an altitude between 250 and 1000 meters. The climate is warm with strong influences from the Mediterranean sea. For centuries vines have been grown on the chalky, clay soils which, in combination with long hours of sunshine, produce fruity wines that are well structured with ripe tannins. The grapes of each variety are carefully selected, destemmed and gently pressed. Vinified separately in stainless steel tanks with a prolonged maceration on the skins, using selected yeasts. Fermentation is started slowly at a low temperature (10 – 12ºC) until the end of the fermentation at 25 – 26ºC. Malolactic fermentation follows. The wines are then blended together. Aged for minimum of a year, in new American oak casks.
