2015 Viña Santa Marina Equus
Equus Crianza Red 2015
Our president Mr. Alvear & wine maker Mrs. Piñero are fond of horses and by keeping the Latin name they pay homage to this noble animal so admired by roman people and our founders.
Viña Santa Marina was founded in 1999. The owners, hailing from Extremadura, were convinced that Extremadura (specifically 8 kilometers outside of Merida) was the perfect location to embark on their new project. They chose a 200 hectare estate at the foot of the La Moneda mountain range where there are 80 hectares of perfectly conserved Mediterranean woods. The mountains, woods, bodega and vineyard make for a truly beautiful setting that does not go unnoticed by visitors. While the holm and cork oak trees add to the picturesqueness of the area, the 61 hectares of vineyards give it freshness, enveloping the bodega, country house and grange in a simplicity and austerity that is characteristic of Extremadura.
Varietals: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah
