THE WINE

Experience Spain with this juicy blend of Tempranillo and Bobal, two of the most widely planted varieties in Spain. Ripe fruits of dark cherry, strawberry and blackberry are complemented by notes of plum and fig preserve. Toasted oak brings hints of vanilla bean and baking spice. This medium bodied wine delivers freshness and balance with well- structured tannins and a long lingering finish.

THE REGION

Manchuela is a large wine growing region in central Spain inland from Valencia and located in the valleys between two rivers, the Jucar and Cabriel.  These valleys and the influences of the Mediterranean Sea make the climate relatively mild.  The moist winds coming off the coast help to regulate the temperatures in the vineyards to ensure optimal growing conditions. Red grape varietals dominate the region with Bobal representing approximately 70% of the vines grown in the region.
