Tasting Notes

Touches of orange and potpourri can be found on the nose. This wine gives plum, raspberry and cherries that are ripe, yet not rich. It shows the fruitiness, fun and charm of a wine that undergoes carbonic maceration.  The palate is medium bodied or slightly more, with juicy acidity.

WINE INFORMATION

Bodegas Más que Vinos is a partnership of three experienced winemakers (Margarita Madrigal, Alexandra Schmedes and Gonzalo Rodriguez) who met in La Rioja in 1998 and started making wine together in 1999. The foundation for their winery dates back to 1851 to Gonzalo’s family winery in Dosbarrios, Toledo, in the heart of Castilla.

Los Conejos Malditos (the damned rabbits) is part of the limited edition line of wines at Más que Vinos. Grapes are organically farmed in this old-vine Tempranillo vineyard that also happens to be overpopulated with rabbits. At 750 meters above sea level and continental climate, the real struggle is to prevent the rabbits from eating the grapes! This wine is bottled as Vino de la Tierra de Castilla. It is the generic designation for wines that are produced in the autonomous community of Castilla La Mancha. It is one step below the Denominación de Origen classification.

Grapes are hand-harvested at the end of September. They undergo spontaneous whole-cluster fermentation in amphora. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimum sulfur addition.
