Ladera Los Cantos and Blanco Selección are our most select wines. The grapes with which we make them come from our best plots of Camporrobles. Best for the characteristics of the soil, with stone on the surface, well aired hillside; and for its location, in the area of maximum altitude of the region, at 920 meters above sea level. Another quality data that influences the result of the wine is the age of the vineyard, in the case of red Ladera Los Cantos, of Bobal vines over 60 years old, and of Cabernet over 40 years old.
Both are wines of high expression with wood step, integrated perfectly respecting the identity of the fruit, which is felt in the tasting thanks to a careful process of preparation.
La Bobal is the grape that has the most presence in Ladera los Cantos, which is assembled with Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine goes through a first-use French oak barrel for 18 months, to then remain in the bottle for another 10 months until the so-called reductive aging process is complete. The result is a fine wine in aromas, fresh, complex and expressive.
Cerro Bercial Blanco Selección is made with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Macabeo, grapes from which only the must flower is obtained for its richness in aromas. This select wine stays for three months in French oak barrels, then spend another 9 months in stainless steel tanks for reductive aging. This wine combines with citrus aromas, white flower and soft toasted memories.
And of course, both can be enjoyed in all the restaurants that we have mentioned. Enjoy the pairing!
