Arrocal Selección

There’s a vineyard down near the village – my father’s vineyard. He looks after it and lovingly tends the vines all year round. It’s curious to see the way his eyes shine when we work with his grapes at harvest time; the way he asks how the wine is going to come out. Here it is! It’s been sleeping for 15 months in French oak barrels. Now it’s all yours. I hope your eyes are shining too.

VARIETY: 100% TEMPRANILLO
VINEYARDS: Pago de los Astrales, in the municipality of Gumiel de Mercado. Limited production.
HARVEST: Carried out manually in 16kg boxes in the first week of October, carried to the winery in 3,000kg trailers.
MACERATION: 20 days at a temperature controlled using water showers.
AGEING: 15 months in French oak barrels.
BARREL TOASTING: Medium and medium plus toasting.
BOTTLING: 1 bottling a year.
HARVEST SIZE: 15,000 bottles a year.
WINEMAKING DIRECTOR: Isaac Fernández Montaña.

TASTING: Opaque ruby colour. A complex bouquet shows us black fruit, soy sauce and crystallised violets, supported by soft minerals, with deep blackberry and bramble flavours, a soft texture and impressive background elevation. Its weight increases when it breathes, but it remains supple, with a spicy nature remaining impressive in the finish. This is enough of an attraction for drinking it now, but it also builds with age.
