This is such a smooth wine that we have even been known to chill it a bit for the afternoon BBQ or hot day - fantastic flavours for such a brilliant price.

75% Garnacha, 25% Tempranillo

Wine Making

Grapes are harvested from vines an average of 25 years old. Each variety is vinified on its own. Maceration lasts 10 days in stainless steel tanks at 77° F. After 15 days of malolactic fermentation the wine is blended. Aged three months in a mix of used and new American Oak casks. The final wine is bottle aged for a minimum of three months prior to release.

The Winery

Don Ramón is produced by Bodegas Aragonesas in the small town of Fuendejalon nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Moncayo Mountains in the northern province of Zaragoza. The extremely dry, hot climate and stark contrast between day and night time temperatures are ideal for making fruity, aromatic wines. Many of the winery’s vineyards were planted over a century ago and produce very low yields of ripe, concentrated fruit.

Tasting Notes

This dry, medium bodied red wine is delicious and easy to drink, with bright aromatics, supple red fruit flavors, hints of vanilla and a soft, smooth texture with balanced acidity.
