Product details

  • Variety

    Tempranillo
  • From the clay and limestone soils of the high plateau of Pedrosa in the Ribera del Duero, this aromatic Tinto Fino (aka Tempranillo) wine is richly concentrated with mulberry and black cherry fruit aromas and flavours. The wine includes 10% of Cabernet Sauvignon and has spent 18 months in French oak and was bottled unfiltered. The nose has a fine complexity with tones of ripened fruit such as cherry, cassis and plum all harmonised by the wood and spice character (vanilla and cocoa) with undercurrents of liquorice. The palate displays great balance with glossy, mature tannins and elegant fruit character that echoes the nose. The finish is long and elegant.

Decanter Magazine

Subtle and elegant, not to mention well-balanced.... this wine showed both elegance and strength.

Winemaking

The decision to harvest is based on the maturity of the grapes which differ year on year. A chilled pre-fermentation maceration occurs over 6 days at a temperature of less than 14 ºC. The fermentation then takes place over 30 days. The wine is then removed from the tanks without any pressing of the grape skins. Malolactic fermentation is slow and relaxed without the addition of bacteria and occurs at 20 ºC over 28 days. The wine is aged for 18 months in new French Oak Barrels and the wine is then bottled without any cold treatment, fining or filtration.
