Valencia's vineyards lie inland from the orange groves and rice fields where the dry climate, altitude and sea breezes promote rich, aromatic, fruit filled wines. Exactly the style you'll find in this young, fresh red ' Merlot Spanish style.
Maria Angeles Camara makes our popular Palacio del Conde wines but here you have her latest creation , a deliciously rich, youthful Merlot. Merlot is gaining ground in Spanien as more people come to appreciate its irresistible charms. The vineyards, at up to 600 metres above sea level, lie 30 miles in from the coast, leaving behind the bustling seaside town of Valencia where the good people of Madrid flock in the summer for relaxation. John Radford in The New Spanien writes: ,Spanish wine is more vibrant, happening and fascinating than it has ever been, , an opinion perfectly illustrated by this almost New World style of Merlot. Smooth enough to enjoy solo, it'salso a match for pasta and pesto, chicken kebabs or roasted vegetables with feta.
