Description

The "bigger brother" of the Canforrales Clásico inspires with an equal fruit intensity, with aromas of ripe plums and cherries. The slight ageing in wood during about three months gives the wine an additional dimension with spicy roasted aromas and only slightly noticeable tannins. A good choice if you don't want the wine to be too heavy. Uncomplicated with a great price!

Bodegas Campos Reales

The landscape of Meseta Central stretches out endlessly to include La Mancha, the land of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, and also Spain's largest wine region.

The heart of the Iberian peninsula is characterised by an extremely continental climate with scorching summers and freezing winters. Luckily, the scarce downpours are aptly retained by the calciferous loamy soil in order to enable the vines' survival. Quite often, these are very old, gnarled, and stunted in their growth. In order to shield the grapes from the torrid heat using their leaves, the vines still are often reared low to the ground in the traditional manner -- also known as bush vines or 'en vaso'.

Tempranillo

Iberian Native

The Tempranillo is the emblem of Spain. With its juicy cherry fruit, crisp tannins, and its notes of leather and spices, it gives the Rioja its face. In the Ribera del Duero, it is known as Tinta del país. Here it turns out focused and muscular. As it has inhabited the Iberian Peninsula for centuries, it is known under countless synonyms. Across the border in Portugal, it is called Tinta Roriz, and lends colour and body to port wine. It also plays an important role in the booming wine scene of the Douro Valley. The Tempranillo owes its name to its early maturity – "temprano" in Spanish means "early". Tip: do it like they do in Spain and enjoy it with lamb.

La Mancha: beyond Don Quixote

If you travel through the barren country of La Mancha, you will keep encountering a man who is said to have lived here more than 500 years ago: Don Quixote, the “Knight of the Sorrowful Countenance.” Restaurants, streets and plazas are named after Miguel de Cervantes’ fictional character. But in the largest wine-growing region in Spain, the signs point towards a change. New expertise in cultivation and processing is producing fruity reds with Mediterranean charm, along with surprisingly crisp whites.

Spain – Variety and perfection

“Somewhere in la Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember...,” begins Don Quixote's odyssey.

The most famous part is definitely when Don Quixote thinks windmills are his enemy and wants to fight them – until they nearly kill him. It’s possible there was a bit too much of the La Mancha wine at play. Spanish vines fight for their survival in rugged landscapes, battling fierce drought and rough soils. But they fight well.
