Details for Dehesa la Granja 2015
Bottle size and vintage
Surrounded by meadow lands in an attractive location and environment, the Dehesa La Granja estate fits into place perfectly as a wine-making establishment aware of its surroundings. Modern production facilities, coupled with underground cellars hewn out of the rock in the mid 18th century, provide the ideal setting for nurturing wines of great quality.
Intense, powerful, with the rich, luscious flavour of ripe dark fruit nuanced by spicy notes from oak-ageing over a period of 24 months, and allowed plenty of repose in bottle.
- Optimum serving temperature:16ºC

Always fantastic wine
This is one of my go to wines from Vinissimus and never disappoints. Such greta value for money. Everyone's wine collection should contain some of this stuff!
Dehesa La Granja
Alejandro Fernández, the renowned Ribera winemaker, was attracted to vine-growing country in Zamora for his third winery, and returned this estate to its original use – the land had been used for breeding fighting bulls. In a superb location on the banks of the River Guareña, the buildings are very much in keeping with the local and natural environment.
