Description

Opulent, oaky Tinta del País (Tempranillo, Ribera-style!) that just goes on and on.

Aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 12 months, with a further 12 months in bottle prior to release. Round, sweet and delicious stuff, with tons of ripe black cherry, plum jam and cinnamon flavours intermingled with secondary, complementary hints of smoky charcoal, stony minerals and soft leather, this is magnificent.

Decant for a bit and match up with mustard roast beef with aioli.

Producer: Valderiz

Among the pioneers of organic farming in Ribera Del Duero, the organically-farmed vineyards of Bodegas Valderiz, watched over by owner Tomás Esteban, cover 60 hectares and are spread over 35 plots on different soil types. The total absence of herbicides, pesticides and synthetic fertilisers is the bodega's trademark, and the family is currently in the process of moving to ultra-pure biodynamic viticulture. Oak barrels at Valderiz are 80% French and 20% American, and the degree of toasting is matched carefully to the various terruñas (terroirs, or soils) of the estate.
