(The name of this wine has recently changed from ‘Arium’ as pictured to ‘Ayrum.’ We’re not quite sure why, as it’s the same in every other respect.)
A good value alternative to Rioja from further south in Valdepenas.
Thought gentle maceration and constant pumping over, fine tannic compounds are extracted and the maximum fruit expression is achieved.
Following the fermentation at a controlled temperature, the wine is aged for 6 months in American oak barrels and around 2 years in bottle.
Intense red ruby colour, with deep and complex aromas of new wood, fruits ans spices. Pleasant and soft on the palate with a good tannic expression and a long finish.
