Characteristics of Ponce Pino
Ponce Pino is a red wine made by the Ponce Winery and Vineyards in Manchuela.
Ponce Winery and Vineyards is a small family winery that produces wines by hand using native varieties with a great personality.
Ponce Pino is a varietal Bobal, with grapes from a single 1.2 hectare farm with vineyards 35 years old, planted at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level and cultivated according to the principles of ecological agriculture.
After a slight maceration and treading of the grapes, fermentation occurs with yeast from their own vineyard in oak vats.
Once fermentation takes place, Ponce Pino undergoes an aging that stretches for 11 months in French oak barrels of 600 litres.
Ponce Pino is an expressive, honest Manchuela. With some Atlantic character and coldness. Perhaps the finest Bobal product of this winery.

Over the past few years, the DO Manchuela has worked extensively on improving the quality of its wines, and it is clear that its efforts have paid off. Improved technological advances and greater knowledge in the cultivation of their vineyards have launched the region into a new era. The wines produced here are enjoyed both in the domestic and the international market, with 80% of production sold internationally. Harvests are now carried out slightly sooner to produce slightly subtler wines, with the skins being separated from the must to get more subdued colours, while the wines are cold stabilized and undergo fermentation in controlled temperatures, in search of fruity aromas.
