Finca Constancia Vino de la Tierra de Castilla 2015 (1x 75cl)
The concept behind Finca Constancia was innovative in Spain: the family wanted to create an integrated winery and vineyard similar to the traditional Châteaux in Bordeaux. The estate is located within the municipality of Otero in the province of Toledo and was purchased by González Byass in the year 2000. Following an extensive study of the soil and the climate, the vineyards were planted with indigenous and international varieties that are most suited to the local conditions. The winery is bordered to the north by the Sierra de Gredos and to the south by the Montes de Toledo, in the basins of the Tajo and Alberche rivers. Located just 90 Km from Madrid, the winery is in an ideal place for cultivating vines, where there is considerable potential to produce high quality wines.
The grapes were harvested by hand with a strict selection process ensuring that only the best bunches were picked. After being de-stemmed the grapes were transferred to fermentation tanks using nothing other than the force of gravity. The first, alcoholic fermentation took place at rigorously controlled temperatures, whilst malolactic fermentation took place in new French and American oak barrels, in which the wine was subsequently left to rest for thirteen months, acquiring just the right touch of wood that characterises each component of the blend.
This wine is is a medium intensity deep picota cherry colour with violet hues. It is clear, bright, and powerful with abundant legs and red frult aromas raspberries and redcurrants -at first followed by balsamic aromas and notes of rosemary and pepper. It is smooth and engaging on the palate, with some tannin that make it pleasing and flavoursome.Well structured, with a long fnish and attractive hints of spices.
