Aromas of ripe fruit (peach, apricot, guava), white flowers and spices (ginger, white pepper) and hint of butter.

Airén grape, Spain’s most widely planted grape is primarily used for brandy, save for a few producers who have revitalized the drought-resistant old bush vines for winemaking. It is a bolder style with lower acidity, often blended with other grapes, including Viura, Verdejo or Sauvignon Blanc to make a more balanced wine.

Description

Bodegas Pinoso was set up as a cooperative in 1932 and the work carried out in the vineyards faithfully respects the wining traditions of our wine producers.

The effort put in by the founding members of Bodegas Pinoso meant that the winery quickly became renowned for the quality of its wines. In the years that followed, many other wine producers wanted to join the cooperative and initially in 1969 and later on in 1974, the winery was extended so as to make room for the new producers. After quite a lot more expansion at the beginning of the 80’s, the winery was capable of producing up to approximately 19,000.000 litres. It thus became the most important winery cooperative in the province of Alicante with 650 members. At the end of the 90’s the winery began to rethink its quality policy so as to improve its bottled wines while at the same time designating the first areas of the winery land to be used for certified ecological vineyard plots.
