Tasting Notes

Colour Purple-Red
Nose An intense, expressive aroma that is dominated by red fruits and black cherries. The bouquet also shows a depth of licorice, tar and barnyard aromas along with rose petal florals.
Palate Extremely persistent on the palate, with flavours plum, violet, mixed spice and a hint of coffee. The fine, drying tannins make for a smoky, lip-smacking finish.
Food Pairing Basque style lamb stew.
Cellaring 5-10 Years

Ribera del Duero
The Spanish wine region of Ribera del Duero was named wine region of the year in 2012 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. It is located on the countries northern plateau, as close to France as it is close to Portugal.

Characterised by a rocky, flat terrain, the region is predominantly dedicated to the red Tempranillo grape. The continental climate has moderately low rainfall, and gets both the extreme 40 degree heat of the Spanish summer and the chills of winter which can reach minus 18 degrees!

Ribera del Duero is home to some of the biggest names in wine, think Emilio Moro, Valderiz and Vega Sicilia and you get the idea. The region produces almost entirely red wines, with the only white grown in the region being Albillo. Tempranillo is the main red varietal, locally referred to as Tinto Fino, although other reds like Garnacha (Grenache) can be very good too.

Rosé wines and Olive oil are also exported from Ribera del Duero.
