This is a true innovation in wine! An experimental step into the darkness from a traditional family owned vineyard exploring thier wine making capabilities by creating a red, white wine. Standing out from the crowd had never seemed simpler.
With its salmon pink colour and standing strong with its 15.5% ABV, this is a white wine to be enjoyed playfully and most probably with food! The aromas of tropical and dried white fruits marry seamlessly with the flavors of citrus and cassis.

The charming family owned estate, Tinedo, has been making wine in the heart of La Mancha since 1742. Manuel, Esperanza and Amparo Álvarez-Arenas, have lead the pursuit of terroir-expressive wines since 2002. They have also reinforced social and agricultural sustainability in this area.
Part of the wine is fermented in 10,000L cement tanks and part in double lined 20,000L stainless steel tanks. The extraction process is always gentle and manual, using destemmed uncrushed grapes, with low fermentation temperatures and maceration which varies depending on the type of grape. The malolactic fermentation takes place in cement tanks and partly in barrels according to the type of wine.
The aim of the aging process is to stabilise the wine and to enhance its natural clarification without filtration. For this, cement tanks and barrels in which the lees “fall” more easily are used. All wines have aged at least one winter over a 24 month period, having thus stabilized in a natural way. The barrels used for aging are old French oak that has previously been used to mature red wine.
