To speak of Grandes Vinos is to speak of a unique land, of tradition, of sunshine, of rain, of effort and dedication… but most of all, it is to speak of passion. Passion for wine and everything that surrounds it. A passion that unites us to enjoy and share the best moments of our lives. More than half a century ago, between 1950 and 1967, winegrowers from different municipalities of the district of Cariñena formed the cooperatives Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Villanueva de Huerva, San Roque de Alfamén, San José de Aguarón and San Bernabé de Cosuenda, as well as the Sociedad Agraria de Transformación de Cariñena, which were the beginnings of Grandes Vinos in 1997.
The harvest began on the 1st of September and was characterized by a dry Winter with very cold temperatures, Spring with little rainfall and a very hot Summer, with maximum temperatures of 42.9ºC and light rainfall, very dry and warm year. Vegetation condition and health before the harvest was very good, highlighting the decrease in the harvest, in general for the apellation of Region of Cariñena, 32% lower than the average of the last 10 years.
Alcoholic fermentation with controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Traced and aired periodic throughout the fermentation. Short post fermentation maceration. The grapes have been pressed by pneumatic presses and the malolactic fermentation has been carried out naturally in concrete tanks coated with epoxy. The clarification process has been carried out with vegetal jelly and bentonite. The wine is stabilized tartarically before bottling. During all these steps the must/wine is controlled by our internal laboratory.
A mid-toned ruby color with spicy aromas of strawberries and white pepper. On the palate it’s light and refreshing. Fruity with flavors of berries and a touch of clove. A nice wine for a cheese plate, pasta or pizza.
