Oaky red with hints of strawberry

This is a mature wine that shows the characteristic strawberry fruit of Tempranillo and softness from extended ageing. Grapes from 30-year-old vines were treated to a slow fermentation before seven years of maturation.

Tasting notes

This is a mature wine from Valdepenas which shows the characteristic strawberry fruit of Tempranillo and softness from extended ageing. Grapes from 30-year-old vines were treated to a slow fermentation before seven years of maturation (including two in oak).


Valdepenas DO (Denominación de Origen) is located in the south of Castila La Mancha in central Spain. Valdepenas translates as Valley of Rocks and takes it name from the ancient Spanish city in the same area. It’s no surprise therefore that it has a semi-arid climate with searing heat in summer contrasted by extremely cold winters.

Expert Review

Terrific value for a midweek wine. It has mature depth from the oak maturing of the Tempranillo grapes, grown under the hot sun of central Spain. Well balanced between distinctive baked fruits, chewy tannins and yet retaining some vibrancy on the palate. Good with pasta and meat sauves or a simple steak.

Perfect food match

Simple Steak Supper with Anciano Tempranillo, Gran Reserva

Simple steak supper

Sometimes it is way to easy to over complicate food and wine matching but this simple, delicious, steak is all this Spanish wine needs. Steak is a wonderful dish, it is quick and easy to cook and depending on your budget can be a mid week saver, try our frying steaks with roasted tomatoes or a weekend splurge of fillet steak with a béarnaise sauce. Either way both will be excellent with this oak matured Tempranillo. Robust enough to stand up to any cut of steak but with chewy tannins to compliment a rich sauce
