Details

From double gold and gold pedigree comes a rich, fruit-packed Tempranillo that's a Spanish celebration in the bottle.

"Valdepenas is code for top shelf Tempranillo without a scary price tag. This wine is dry and full bodied but retains elegance, thanks to its juicy acidity and succulent fruit flavours, which shine in every mouthful. It’s a wonder this wine doesn’t cost a lot more." - 4 Stars, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer (2010 vintage)

"A rich, ripe red wine that’s rustic but very drinkable. This wine speaks of a warm climate, with baked blackberry, (like Mum’s baked blackberry pie; delish) aromas, vanilla and cocoa. The palate is rich, ripe, rounded with robust tannins that give structure to the ripe, generous fruit." - Lynnette Hudson, Experienced Winemaker and Advisor (2010 vintage)

Full of ripe dark fruit, complemented by a hint of vanilla and rich chocolate tones. With 9 years already behind it, it's ready to be enjoyed now.

El Cabrón Digno (The Dignified Billy Goat) pays homage to the native breed of black goat that grazes in the vineyards of southern Spain. As one of the country’s oldest winemaking regions, recognised as an official appellation of origin since 1932, DOP Valdepeñas is home to some of Spain’s oldest vines and most revered wines. Some of our Tempranillo vines even date back to the year of our winery’s foundation in 1904 and their precious grapes are blended with those of our younger ones.
