Altolandon Rayuelo Bio 2017

Rayuelo, made from 100% Bobal, has a deep red garnet color. On the nose, it has aromas of black fruits, like berries and blackberries combined with spices. On the palate, the wine is full, powerful and complex. Dark fruit is combined with silky tannins, licorice, pepper and oak notes.

After the fruit is picked it goes to the modern equipped winemaking room. No industrial yeasts are used, only those naturally occurring on the grape. The skins remain in contact with the juice for an average of 2-3 weeks after which a light pressing follows. After this, the young wine goes to the barrel cellar for further maturation in barriques. Approximately 25% of these barrels are replaced each year. All wines undergo malolactic fermentation in the barrel. Rayuelo matures for 8 months in barriques. After the wine is bottled, it rests for a minimum of 8 months before being released to the market.
  • About Altolandon

    Bodegas Altolandon is located in Landete, Cuenca between three provinces: Valencia, Cuenca and Teruel, at an altitude of 1100 meters, measured from the highest point. The estate covers a total of 120 hectares and in the middle of it is the winery. Altolandon's philosophy is to make quality wines from quality grapes. The passionate Rosalia Molina is the driving force behind Altolandon.

    Everything about the vineyard is handled with the utmost care. The wine comes from the grape, but the altitude where they grow and the terroir it comes from are essential to the end result. The climatic conditions: high altitude and many hours of sunshine, ensure that during the last months of the grape's development a slow and balanced ripening occurs. The wines from these grapes offer a variety of color, depth and breadth of flavors and great complexity on the palate. The higher acidity and proportion of tannins present make them well suited for barrel aging. Irreptible ages 4 months in wood and the Rayuelo 8 months.
