Granrojo Tempranillo 2014

Overview

Rojo Tempranillo has an attractive cherry red color with violet shimmer, denoting its youth. Very intense aromas of red and black fruit (morello, red and black prune and raisins) permeate the nose, and follow through to the palate. It is an elegant wine with a certain freshness. The fruit flavors linger in the long finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Tempranillo is considered Spain’s benchmark grape, defining the character of the land from where it is grown. The grapes for this wine come from 30 year-old vines in lime-based soil in the Campo de Calatrava in Valdepeñas, situated at 2350 feet (716m) above sea level. Only the best Estate-grown Tempranillo grapes are chosen during harvest, which takes place in the beginning of September. The wine undergoes controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a long maceration at temperatures not exceeding 82ºF (28ºC).


Serving Hints
This wine is ideally served at room temperature with a large variety of foods, especially with vegetable-based casseroles, gazpachos, red meat and mature cheeses.
