Manzanos wine is a family business devoted to viticulture and wine-making in several Appellations since 1890. Manzanos Wine belongs to the group of companies united under the company name Manzanos Enterprises, which is currently run by the sixth generation of Fernandez de Manzanos family.
300ha of vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soil at an average height of 400m above sea level. Meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards, coupled with the extreme climate, offer the perfect conditions for the production of great wines. Grapes are all hand-picked in early October.
A long maceration of 28 days at a controlled temperature and 24 months ageing in American and French oak casks, half and half, followed by a further twelve months rounding off in the bottle. This has all gone to produce a wine with great body and extract.
Clear, bright cherry-red colour with sparkles of ruby. Aromas of vanilla and sweet almonds with hints of leather in fine combination with the wood. The attack is generous and pleasant with intense spicy nuances. Round, intense finish.
Ideal with barbecued meat and smoked cheese.
