Product Description
Details

Dulce Crápula is a Spanih sweet wine made from old Monastrell vines by Gabriel Martínez Valero, winemaker at the Crápula Wines winery in Jumilla

Grapes come from plots located at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level. The low-yielding vines grow in limestone soils with extremely low levels of organic matter. Climate is mediterranean-continental.

Meticulously harvested and destemmed, the grapes were cold-soaked at a temperature of 4ºC for 3 days. Then they were added alcohol, macerated for a further 6 days and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 26ºC. Dulce Crápula was subsequently aged for 3 months in French oak barrels. Prior to its bottling, this Spanish dessert wine was clarified with egg whites and naturally filtered.

Appearance

Dulce Crápula has a deep, impenetrable plum colour with ruby tinges.

Nose

Remarkable aromatic display, with notes of plums, figs, raisins, prunes, and dried apricots. Some touches of blueberry jam, along with hints of toast, pastry, cocoa and, finally, a refreshing note of menthol.

Palate

Bold, dense and smooth, a kaleidoscopic parade of black fruit flavours balanced with a fresh acidity and round, ripe tannins that give way to an elegant, velvety finish with remembrances of fresh mint, cocoa and, again, ripe black fruit. 

Our personal opinion

Dulce Crápula is the perfect wine for a laid-back afternoon. It pairs wonderfully with a relaxed, friendly conversation.
