Utiel-Requena Denomination of Origin
LAS DOSCES, the young red oaked wine of Chozas Carrascal
Bobal, Tempranillo and Syrah.
Ageing process: five months in French Allier barrel
A young red wine matured in wine casks at 13.5º C.
Each variety is vinified separately. Fermentation is performed at a controlled temperature below 25ºC. The maceration process lasts approximately two weeks for the Tempranillo variety and three for Syrah. Two automated pigeages per day, and two deléstage during the maceration process when one and two thirds of the fermentation have already bean reached.
The free-run musts from each variety are transferred to two or three year old barrels and left to age for five months.
Before bottling, both musts are finally blended (coupage).
Colour: Picota cherry red with bright violet hues that highlight the wine’s youth.
Nose: Predominance of red fruit. Soft toasted aromas with subtle balsamic notes.
Palate: Fresh, smooth and intense. Characterized by the silky sensation of the Syrah and the structure of Tempranillo.
To appreciate the full potential of this wine we recommend serving it at a temperature of around 13°C. Bearing in mind the relatively short ageing process of this wine, its youth and its meaty and fruity taste, we can say that it pairs very well with blue or fatty fishes such as sardines, fresh anchovies, mackerel, trout, tuna, bonito, salmon and swordfish, etc. It matches with any fish with strong flavours and with the consistency of balancing the structure and body of a young wine.
