Like taking a walk through a forest when everything is in bloom, this wine has a fresh earthy aroma that is backed up by delicate baking spice notes and a hint of cedar.
Very rich and intense cherry notes are the signature of this wine, leading into wild raspberry, red currant and savoury earthy and dark chocolate flavours. The perfectly integrated oak lends its way into toasted chestnuts, cinnamon and a hint of vanilla on the long lingering finish.
Roast rack of lamb, rabbit stew, grilled eggplant or Pulpo a la Gallega (grilled octopus in a smokey paprika sauce).
Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!
Tangy or sweet, juicy or tart: more sophisticated than a strawberry, but just as lush.
A sweet, almost caramel-like aroma reminiscent of your favourite juicy, red berry.
Ever gotten into a car with leather seats, or taken a big whiff of your dad's leather jacket?
When was the last time you raked up all the leaves in your yard and jumped in the pile?

Founded in 1946, the Mateos de la Higuera family planted their first vineyards in the heart of the Alhambra mountain range. The family aims to produce wines with depth and character. Gaining their La Mancha Domination of Origin classification in 2005, the Mateos de la Higuera family wanted to show their commitment to making wines only from their estate fruit, giving them more control of the quality of wines they produce. Tempranillo grapes used to produce this wine come from one of the oldest vineyards, planted in 1977. The age of these vines along with the unique soil composition of the La Mancha region add complexity and concentration of flavour. The Ylirum Crianza is the winner of four international gold medal awards, including the Mundus Vini grand gold award which is one of the best awards a wine can receive. The Mateos de la Higuera family aim to continue making a name for their wines across the globe. Drink now or in four years from now at a temperature of 18 C.
