Winemaker's Notes:

An opaque ruby color. Powerful, plentiful, seductive blackberry and blackcurrant aromas including baking spices and floral qualities. Soft, silky and impressively pure, with vibrant dark berry flavors and fine-grained tannins. Surprisingly juicy and persistent with excellent saturation and clarity on the palate.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Arrocal:

Welcome. We are Rosa and Moises, we wanted to build our winery in the place we were born: Gumiel de Mercado, a small village in a priveleged location of the Ribera del Duero.

All of our ancestors have cultivated grapes. We received the land from our parents and planted our wines with the same care. In order to obtain the perfect fruit for our wines, we use natural efforts and implemented new technologies.

In 2004 we finished constructing our estate in Gumiel. Every step of the wine-making process is done through gravity, softly picking up our grapes. During fermentation, temperature was controlled through water showers. We look for maximum fruit expressions through middle macerations and gentle crushing. Our wines sleep the time necessary for giving structure without losing identity.

We have 27 hectares of land that grow Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
