DO Manchuela is a large area in the centre of Spain, east of Cuenca and Albacete, and has 70 towns in Castilla La Mancha. It is bordered by other Designations of Origin: La Mancha in the west, Jumilla in the south and Almansa and Utiel-Requena to the east. The soil is composed of clay on limestone and the average height of the vineyards are between 600-700 meters. Another unevenness that deeply marks the surface of the area are the two large reservoirs to the north of the cultivation area, Alarcón and Contreras, which allow an abundance of irrigation. These are all very favourable conditions for vine cultivation.

Parajes del Valle is a bright, new, exciting winery, established as recently as 2018. From Day One their wines have been in the young but experienced hands of Maria Jover, a 28 year old winemaker who counts Vegas Sicilia as a previous employer. Her modern views to winemaking are transforming the wines of the area. The certified organic Monastrell grapes all come from old vines (15-40 years) split across four plots (Fountain of the Partridges, La Cañada de Albatana and the Termino de Arriba in the north of Jumilla). They are maintained by the age-old “Terraje" system, meaning that the vineyards are rented out to the farmers, who give back 7% of the production in turn for taking good care of the vines. Almost all 80–90-year-old vines in Jumilla are maintained like this but are increasingly at risk of dying out as landowners want to change the system to the more productive and cost-effective system of irrigated vineyards. Parajes del Valle is adamant to protect the “Terraje” system, even paying a higher price for the grapes in guarantee the highest quality.

Tasting note: Concentrated and deliciously aromatic orange wine with hints of ripe mango and peach with an orange zesty flavour to balance it out. Super fruity on the nose and the palate with very soft tannins. A slight herbaceousness on the finish but a texture that is quite light and not too oily or thick.
