Tasting notes

Bright cherry with garnet reflections. Frank aroma, full of red fruits with slight oak contribution that flatters toasted and elegant memories of sweet spices. Tasty, expressive, ripe and fruity tannins, long finish.

Serving temperature: 15- 16 ºC.

Vineyards

  • Location: Mogarraz (Salamanca), Spain. Inside the Natural Park of Las Batuecas - Sierra de Francia (Biosphere Reserve)
  • First selection of varieties and soils (shales, clays and granite) over 60-years old.
  • Second selection on vineyard and harvest by hand in plastic boxes of 18 kg.

Elaboration

  • Third selection of bunches on table, soft stemming and crushing.
  • Vatting and cold maceration.
  • Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with autochthonous yeast for 12-15 days at controlled low temperature in stainless steel tanks of large-area and low height to accentuate the extraction of components.
  • Descube (extraction of yolk wine) and light pressing (extraction of press wine).
  • Malolactic fermentation with selected lactic acid bacteria, in stainless steel tanks.
  • Aged during 8/9 months in 50% French, 50% American oak barrels of light and medium toast.
  • No additional filtering, clarification or stabilization to avoid stealing any nuance to wine; this may bring some natural sediments over time.

Vintage: 2014

There was rain enough in Spring 2014 to compensate the vines of very dry summer. It was also an especially cold year with some nights during August where temperatures dropped to 8° C and not exceeding the 30º C with daylight excepting the last week.

  • Bottling date: third week of August 2015

Good quality/price

A good wine. Great quality and excellent price. It goes well with all kind of meats and even with a red fruits dessert.

Not everything has to be “Ribera de Duero or Rioja”.
