Bodegas Luzon was was founded in 1916 by a group of families with a long standing winemaking tradition. It was rebuilt and modernized in the late 1990's when a new young team brought in their expertise and new ideas. Jumilla has become the revelation among Spanish winemaking regions emerging as a leading force in the national and international scene. With ground breaking talent Bodegas Luzón has re-invented the traditions of winemaking in both terms of style and winemaking techniques. Monastrell is the main grape variety in Jumilla, there are records of it being grown there since the 14th Century, and this is a very important variety to Luzon. At Luzon, however, there are also plantings of Tempranillo, Cabernet Souvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot and the white grapes Chardonnay and Macabeo. The Dulce is 60% Monastrell and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in oak casks for 8 months.
Luzon Dulce has a bright cherry red appearance,intense aromas of raspberry, blackberry, blueberry and a hint of clove. Full-bodied in the mouth with jammy, sweet black and red fruit, a little spicy pepper, rich, well structured, finishing with nice balance and length.
