Description

A juicy and versatile medium-bodied Tempranillo from central sunny Spain.

Sensibel by name but certainly not by nature. Sensibel, aka the Rioja grape, Tempranillo, has all the rich depth of flavour that you would expect from this noble variety. This is a juicy and versatile medium-bodied red from central sunny Spain that has crunchy red fruit with delicious black cherry flavours. It’s smooth on the palate with soft ripe tannins and just a hint of toasty oak to balance. This wine is a tribute to the ancestors of the winemakers at Bodegas Latue, who called the Tempranillo grape variety ‘Sensibel’.

The story of Bodegas Latué started back in 1954 at which time it was known as the San Isidro Cooperative. The winery is located in Villanueva de Alcardete in La Mancha, central Spain. The 130 grower members were determined to produce wines of true commercial worth. They demonstrated their commitment by focusing attention on the vineyards. Quality was to be the byword and organics too became key. Between 1954 and 2007, the membership expanded significantly to 600 growers. Quality and market relevance increased to such an extent that exports rapidly became their prime source of income. In 2007 the name Bodegas Latué was created and added to the business profile. The 600 growers cultivate 6200 hectares of vines, a significant percentage being cultivated organically. Winemaking rests in the experienced, capable hands of Jorge Pradillo. La Mancha’s natural environment provides the perfect conditions for wine growing – a regular continental Mediterranean climate, with warm summers, cold winters and low rainfall. Soils are clay-limestone. Using modern winemaking technology Latué ensures that the quality organic grapes are transformed into the best possible finished wine – wine that reflects its precise origins, whilst offering an authentic expression of the grape varieties themselves.
