Description

Located in Rociana in the deep south of Spain, on the Atlantic coast close to Portugal,  the Contreras Family are a fourth generation of grape growers and winemakers.  Their goal is to make complex wines, where this single grape variety is expressed in different ways according to site and soil.  Fruit comes from five vineyards around the Doñana national park following an ecological tradition.   In 1883 Gregorio Contreras López was born, he grew his own lands and harvested the grapes for the production and commerce of wine.  In 1949, Gregorio´s son, Antonio Contreras Labrador, taking advantage of the increasing wine demand, invested in the purchase of new states and constructed new winemaking facilities.  It was the third generation of the family, Gregorio and Manuel Contreras Ruiz, who merged the inheritance received in winemaking and wine-growing, forging the identity of Ruiz Contreras, based on knowledge, professionalism, and work.  Currently, the fourth generation is entering the family winery, with the intention of making Contreras Ruiz a wine reference in the area, respecting the heritage received, innovating, renewing and creating new sensations.

Produced from 100% Zalema, fermentation takes place at low temperature in stailnlesss steel for fourteen days.  Aged on its lees for 90 days this wine is a beautiful pale yellow with hints of gold and green,  Aromas of apple, lemon and pineapple with herbaceous hint leading to a lovely palate with an oily texture, fresh acidity with a citric aftertaste.
