We like to provide a personal service. So, when you said you wanted one of your favourite Gran Reserva with more fruit and aged in oak slightly longer, we poked our heads around the winery door and asked the winemakers to do just that. They did. Cinnamon and forest fruit flavours of the Tempranillo grapes are combined with spicy, toasty oak to make this soft, complex Valencian red. It doesn't lounge around like a chubby, couch-potato Rioja, it's energetic, well-toned & great with roast lamb.
After some years travelling around the world I think that finally I have found one of the most interesting places to make my wines, a place that has a perfect combination between tradition ( wine has been done in the area since III b.c)and modernity (here in the area I have the the most modern technology and most open minded producers I have ever work with).
I really hope you will enjoy my Valencian wines as much as I have enjoyed making them.
In this wine, I have tried to combine the tradition of the Gran Reservas from Rioja with the modernity and cheerful character of the Mediterranean people. I have combined the spicy notes of the barriques with the typical cinnamon and forest fruits flavours of the Tempranillo grapes. Making a complex but soft and easy to drink Gran Reserva wine.
Old vines, limestone soil and a modern winemaking talent combine here to produce this exceptional wine. A full on red, with berry fruit flavours and a subtle spice, preceding a velvety-smooth finish. Superb!
This wine is a wonderful balance of tradition and modernity - from the Gran Reservas of Rioja to the sunshine soaked, cheery personalities of the Med. A compelling Gran Reserva that is an absolute bargain for such quality.
Only certain wines have the ability to age for as long as grand Avalon and not turn into vinegar! Thankfully, Avalon had what it took to stand the test of time and after over a decade it's at the peak of its powers. Elegant, smooth and with amazing complexity!
