For the wine snob:
Depending on the vintage the grapes come from a combination of 3 vineyards; “El Codo”, “El Llano” and “Finca Iscorta” with an average of 40 years old. The grapes are destemmed and crushed and fermented naturally with wild yeast in stainless steel tanks. Aged in used American oak for 2 years and hand racked 4 times by means of the traditional “barrel to barrel” method, the wine then ages for at least an additional 18 months in bottle before being released on the market.
For the rest of us:
This Crianza is 95% Tempranillo, 3% Graciano, 2% Garnacha. There is an intense aroma of ripe fruit, with hints of vanilla and toasted wood, with jam coming through underneath. The smooth pleasant notes of spices are very well-balanced and rounded with easy tannins. This wine is described with a very technical term, yummy. This is easily one of the most approachable Tempranilos that you will find, so enjoy!
