NARANJAL, means ‘Orange Grove‘, which grow near to some of the premium vineyards in the hills of Requena, Valencia, from where this wine originates. The label evokes an image of the orange grove synonymous with the Mediterranean and the imposing mountains that border the region.
All three wines come from Utiel-Requena, located approximately 80km inland from the coast at an altitude of between 600 and 800. For centuries vines have been grown on the chalky clay soils which in combination with long hours of sunshine and cool night time temperatures produce fruity wines that are well structured with ripe tannins.
Tempranillo Merlot (85%, 15%) – The grapes are gently pressed then fermented separately using traditional methods during 10 days at a temperature of between 25ºC and 28ºC. This wine goes well with the majority of dishes – grilled meats, tapas and rice dishes.
Bobal Shiraz Rosé (85%, 15%) – The grape varieties are made separately by cold maceration, gentle pressing and cool fermentation of the free run juice at around 16ºC.
