Centelleo, Airén Moscatel, Vino de España, Spain, 2019

Producer Profile

Literally meaning "the most wanted", Vinos Más Buscados is a collection of wines grown and nurtured in the Southern half of Spain, mainly in the area known as La Mancha.

Inspired by Spain's largely untapped fine wine resources, friends, colleagues and Masters of Wine, Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke set off on a journey to find the unsung heroes of Spain, be they regions, growers or winemakers. Fergal's interest in wine terroirs and Giles' instincts for flavour, led them to unearth great Spanish wines whose stories were untold. Each wine is hand made. Each wine reflects the personality of the land and the subtle imprint of man in varying degrees. Now encompassing the terrific value of Campo Azafran, Centelleo, Torre Solar and Castillo del Moro, Vinos Más Buscados is a reflection of all that is best in modern Spanish wine making.

Viticulture

The grapes are sourced from a mixture of trellised and bush vines in the Manzanares district of La Mancha- renowned for it's limestone soils. The majority of the grapes are machine harvested at night in order to maintain the acidity and bright, fruit flavours.

Winemaking

Centelleo wines are made entirely from free run juice and fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks and then matured on fine lees until bottling. The resulting wines show unparalleled freshness and aromatics compared to many similarly priced wines from around the world.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Moscatel, with some honey on the nose. White floral notes and lime on the palate and a nice dry finish.
