Vinification:

Tempranillo is the most well known varietal specifically attached with Spain. Tempranillo characterizes itself by showing peculiar characteristics in each region of Spain depending on where it is cultivated.
Alvear has adapted its winemaking processes with the typicity of the grape in this area to make a balanced and easily approachable wine.
Picked at full maturity, early in the season compared with the rest of Spain. The wine was macerated slowly in temperature controlled tanks and bottled young to retain the authentic, fresh and fruity flavor from the grape.
Each vineyard is cultivated individually, yields are kept low and a strict fruit selection process is used to ensure that the end product is of the highest standard.
