Characteristics of Treinta Mil Maravedíes
Treinta Mil Maravedíes is a red wine from the Vinos de Madrid region produced by the Marañones winery. This wine is a blend of 2 different grape varieties; Grenache and Morenillo.
The grapes used to make this wine come from plots owned by the vineyard. The vineyards are home to granitic soils with sandy textures, that are very fresh and deep degraded, poor in organic matter. The vines themselves are between 30-70 years old and are cultivated organically.
On arrival at the winery, the bunches are left to undergo cool pre-ferment maceration. The grapes, without being destemmed, then ferment in wooden tanks using native yeasts. During this phase, pigeage also occurs to optimise fermentation.
Then the wine rests in French oak barrels (399 to 500 l., old and new ones) and wooden vats that can hold up to 45 hectolitres. Then, Treinta Mil Maracedíes ages for 8 months on its lees in the barrels, followed by another two months in an oak tank.
Marañones is one of the most renowned wineries in the Vinos de Madrid region. The hard work put in by the company has really paid off, with their products consistently acclaimed by leading guides.
Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
