Our grapes are grown in the wine area of southeast and west of Spain.

This area is marked by its Mediterranean climate and its average altitude of 500 metres above sea level.

The soils are mainly calcisols: they are rich in limestone and poor in organic material.

The low rainfall, extreme temperatures in winter and summer, and the long hours under the sunshine, make possible an exceptional ripening.

Red wines

cabernet sauvignon

It gives low yields of full-bodied, high-acid, tannic wines, which respond well to oak ageing and develop complexity in the bottle. Classic flavors described are: blackcurrants (in moderate climates), tending towards black cherry and blackcurrant jam (in warm and hot climates). In the cooler regions, the blackcurrant fruit can be accompanied by notes of green bell pepper, mint and cedarwood, which become more accentuated as the wine ages.Warm climate Cabernet Sauvignon, like our wines from Spain, can have more of a black cherry, and even black olive, fruit character.

monastrell

It is the typical grape of Murcia and the south of Valencia.Internationally it is known under its French name, Mourvèdre, (name derived from the Valencian town Morvedre).It produces powerful wines with great structure and a strength somewhat higher than normal. Spanish Monastrell wines tend to be rich, dark affairs, frequently showing flavors of blackberry and black cherry.

merlot

There are two styles standing out: late harvested grapes which offer intense purple, blackberry, plum colors and soft, velvety tannins along with full-bodied taste and high alcoholic content. The other style is early harvest and medium-bodied wines with moderate alcoholic content, but with a higher acidity and with a character more towards fresh red fruits (raspberries, ripe strawberries) and, maybe, with even some vegetal and dense aromas.

a
tempranillo

Considered Spain’s most noble grape, Tempranillo is widely planted throughout Spain.It is considered to be indigenous to the Rioja region and its Spanish origin is internationally recognised. Spain’s “star” grape ages well and produces fruity, excellent-quality wines, balanced in sugar, color and acidity.

garnacha

This grape variety native to Spain is one of the most extensively grown varieties in the whole world. In warm Spanish climate it produces the kind of wine for which it is best known (high alcohol level, low acidity and full-bodied, fruity wines with raspberry aromas).

White wines

sauvignon blanc

Sauvignon blanc normally shows a herbal character suggesting bell pepper or freshly mown grass. The dominating flavors range from sour green fruits of apple, pear and gooseberry through to tropical fruits of melon, mango and passion fruit.

airén

Airén is planted in more Spanish vineyards than any other native white grape. In fact, about 30 % of Spanish vineyards are planted with Airén vines. Airén grapes are disease-resistant and tolerate drought well. The grape has neutral characteristics that are best fit to produce simple, refreshing, fruitfull, crisp white wines for early enjoyment.

DO Jumilla

Designation of Origin Jumilla is located in southeastern Spain. It covers a wide area in northern Murcia region and part of the southeastern Albacete province.

A region with a rough landscape, where vineyards stretch over a high plateau surrounded by mountains. The vineyard is located at an altitude of 400 and 800 meters.

What makes the difference between Jumilla wine’s personality and others is the so-called “terruño”, a magic combination of the grape variety, soil composition, orientation and vine pruning, as well as climatology.

What makes the difference between Jumilla wine’s personality and others is the so-called “terruño”, a magic combination of the grape variety, soil composition, orientation and vine pruning, as well as climatology.

Soil

Soils in this Designation of Origin are brown, calcareous and brown calcareous. Overall, they retain a good deal of moisture and have an average permeability, what allows vines to survive to prolonged drought conditions, making good use of the water available.

These soils have low organic matter content, high pH and low salinity. Their texture gives them good aeration.

WEATHER CONDITIONS

The climate in the area is continental influenced by the proximity of Mediterranean Sea to the East and La Mancha plateau to the West.

Sunny and arid, with approximately 3 000 sunlight hours per year.

With scarce and irregular rainfall and, sometimes, torrential downpours.

The average annual temperature is around 16 ºC, with cold winters reaching sub-zero temperatures, and warm summers with temperatures rising over 40 ºC.

Vineyard

To talk about Designation of Origin Jumilla is talking about “Monastrell” variety, being the best adapted variety to climate and soil conditions within this designation. It stamps this personality to its wines, which represent more than the 80 % of the designation.

Monastrell grapevine is an upright variety, with short thick vine shoots and few branches. Its leaves have a five-sided leaf blade with three marked lobes.

Its bunches are small and compact, with medium-sized spherical blue-black berries, whose skin is thick and rich in anthocyanins. Its fleshy pulp is soft and low in tannins.

This rustic variety has a high resistance to drought, needs good exposure to sunlight.
