Product Description

Royal Ancestral is a sparkling wine made in the Ancestral methode. Local grape varieties; 90% Royal, 5% Bobal and 5 %Tortosina, from two differnet parcels of 65-70 years old vines in bush. Soil is clay and chalk. Hand harvested in small cases. No addition of any additives in the winemaking process. Production of 850 bottles. Royal is a Rose local variety from Utiel-Requena that in the past was the third most production in the area, due to low extraction in colour and low yield production, cooperatives didn’t like it and they replanted with other varieties as Bobal and Tempranillo. Juan had recovered two old parcels, with total production of 800 bottles. Nowadays just three producers from the area are making wine with this Rose grape.
