Description

The top wine of Bodega Navarro Lopez, a family-run winery established by Don Juan Megía Sánchez in 1904. Valdepeñas which literally means "Valley of Rocks" is located where the Jabalón River meanders through hills bordering with stony clay-lime soils. Styled like the top cuvee of a premium Rioja, low-yielding Tempranillo vines averaging 40-60yo are planted at 650-820 metres in an extreme continental climate with cold winters and hot, dry summers where they produce exceptional intensity of fruit and complexity. Hand harvested with extended maceration and maturation in new oak. An opulent blockbuster wine that were it to come from a better known regional like Rioja, it would easily cost double the price.

Smells

opulent baked fruit aromas, figs, black plums with baking spices, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg, supported by complexing nuances of toffee, coffee grinds and coconut husks.

Tastes

this wine speaks of wonderfully warm afternoons, big ripe fruit flavours, lashings of mulberries and plums with dollops of coconut and vanilla oak providing dusty, chewing tannins. A very concentrated wine, with juicy acidity which reigns in the ripe fruit, giving length, balance and drinkability. This is the perfect BBQ wine, perfect with your favourite cut of meat.
