Bodegas Arraéz, located in Valencia, was established by local growers in 1916 to...
enable them to vinify their own harvest. In 1950, Don Antonio Arraéz bought this property and it has been in the hands of the Arraéz family ever since. The vineyards are 90 kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea at 600-800 metres altitude, something which gives freshness to the grapes grown in this hot region. All of the grapes are hand-picked.
Mala Vida comes from a sustainably farmed vineyard with vines that are between 15 and 30 years old, grown on limestone soils in the Terres de Alforins area.
Harvest began in the third week of September and finished at the end of October.
The wine is a fruit-forward blend of 35% Tempranillo, 10% Shiraz, 35% Monastrell and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation took place before the wine was aged in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for eight months to add depth and roundness.
A purple red colour, with intense aromas of red and black fruits, and well balanced oak aromas. It has sweet tannins on the palate and a long persistent finish.
