Vineyards are grown on the plains surround the town of Manzanares in La Mancha on a number of varying soil types. These range from deep clay loams with good drainage through to some very stony soils with a breakdown of granites, giving quite different flavour profiles. The vineyards are a mixture of low trellised vines on wires and a number of vineyards that are traditional bush vines with lower yields and more flavour concentration.
The majority of the grapes are machine harvested at night in order to maintain the acidity and fresh red fruit flavours. They are are graded for quality and flavour profile then gently de-stemmed and crushed to large refrigerated tanks. No oak aging to retain all the fresh flavours and roundness on the palate.
No oak treatment
