Spain / Castilla Leon
Andy's Tasting Notes
A Ribera del Duero that totally hits the sweet spot. A lovely contrast of Duero wildness and richness counter-balanced by pitch perfect freshness, refinement and structure. Rich black fruits, spice, clove, smoky oak and rounded tannins.
If possible, decant 1 hour before serving.
100% Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo)
Producer notes – production: 100% Tempranillo (Tinta del Pais) from 225 hectares of meticulously tended vineyards near Peñafiel in the centre of Ribera del Duero. Grapes are selected from the best plots (according to soil type and exposure) and are hand harvested. After 35 days maceration the wine spends 15 months in new French oak barrels with regular battonage.
Price per bottle £17.50
