Venta Morales Tempranillo 2014
When the whole world associated Spanish wines with a small list of Riojas of dubious quality and cheap Jereces, these two visionaries recovered old abandoned vineyards in areas then unknown, such as DO Jumilla. At the same time, Jorge Ordóñez reinvented the business of exporting Spanish wines, creating new types of customers and giving the world the potential of our wines.
The distinctive seal of the winery is the artisan production of native Spanish varieties from very old, less productive vineyards, but which provide more quality in every way.
Currently, Bodegas Volver makes wines under the protection of DO Jumilla, Castilla la Mancha and Alicante.
Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.
Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
