Characteristics of Salia de Finca Sandoval
Salia de Finca Sandoval is a red wine from D.O.Manchuela produced by Finca Sandoval.
This wine is a coupage of Syrah, Garnacha and Garnacha tintorera. On the farm there are 10 hectares of wineyards, four different lands, different types of soils and distinct positions that search for maximum expression and variety complexity. These plots are vinified separately and are raised in different toasted barrels. The final coupage of the wine is a conjunction of all the lands, varieties and different toasted barrel types.

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.
Finca Sandoval is the personal project started by Victor de la Serna, the wine journalist and writer, in 1998. It is essentially based in the production of his own 10.5 ha vineyards planted with syrah in the heart of Cuenca within the Designation of Origin Manchuela, on calcareous and clay soils at an altitude of 770 m. They were planted on the base of the knowledge acquired over 30 years on the soils of the area, which have an enormous potential for the production of high quality wines, especially red.
