| Finca Constancia Syrah, Cabernet, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo, Graciano, Cabernet Franc 2007 |
Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, Spain
Finca Constancia is situated in a 230 hectare property in Otero, Toledo. The vineyards lie at 480 metres above sea level and are located between the Tajo and the Alberche rivers and the Gredos and Toledo mountain ranges. The undulating terrain contains a variety of soil, which ranges from moderately acidic to extremely alkaline and from slightly chalky to very chalky. Such a variation in soil can at times complicate the management of vines, yet it also allows the winemaker to create a unique blend. The climate is extreme and dry, with great variation in temperature between seasons. The vines include both indigenous and international varieties: Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Graciano, Garnaca, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdejo.
Manual harvest and selection of grapes. Fermentation in stainless steel deposits of 13.500 litres capacity. Cesar Fernandez, Finca Constancia ́s winemaker, ages the wine in new American and French oak barrels for six months.
Intense red cherry colour, with complex aromas combined with rich spices. The palate is elegant and well structured. Serve between 16-18° with red meats, cured meats, cheeses and game.
