Castilla-La Mancha is the world’s largest wine region. It borders Madrid in the north and Andalusia in the south. It gets its name from the Moorish word ‘Manxa’, meaning parched earth and this is particularly apt for the arid southern wilderness where this juicy and soft red is made.
This is 100% Tempranillo, the famous red variety of Rioja. The winemaker is Asunción Yebenez and down here near Ciudad Real the summers are long and hot which results in extremely ripe grapes and concentration of flavour that makes them perfect for easy drinking. It is proving to be one of our most popular wedding wines and it’s easy to see why with its fruity, approachable style.
