El Vínculo Alejairén Crianza 2022

15,50

The El Vínculo winery is the result of an old idea, to make a great wine in La Mancha. After travelling around the region they found excellent Tempranillo grape vines, well acclimatised to the local conditions. Once the red wine production was consolidated, the winery produced a white wine with a very special and almost forgotten variety, the Airén – the native white grape of La Mancha. The first vintage was 2007, made with grapes from Paraje la Golosa.

SURFACE AREA
3 hectares.

AGE

The grapevines used to make this wine have an average age of 90 years old, are head-trained and not irrigated. These, together with the characteristics of the area, are the reasons why production is very limited and quality simply excellent.

LAND

CLIMATE/HARVESTING
Hand harvested. The year was extremely hot and dry. Prolonged episodes of extreme temperatures predominated in the summer. Conditions were very harsh during the entire cycle, which led to harvesting two weeks early. Rated as good.

AGEING
At least 14 months in 225-litre French oak barrels and rested in the bottle prior to release.
