In the last few decades, Ribera del Duero has emerged as Spain's most compelling wine region. Yet it's a region that will be unfamiliar to many Australians. Located in the north-central part of the Iberian Peninsula, roughly halfway between Madrid and the Basque coast, the appellation resides along the upper reaches of the Rio Duero, the same river that flows through Toro and into Portugal. The vineyards grow at the highest average elevation in all of Europe and experience wide diurnal/nocturnal temperature swings. The reds typically offer plush textures and solid fruit weight comparable to those from the Southern Rhone, though others find similarities to riper style Bordeaux. The soils and climate have proven to be an excellent match for Tinto Fino (the local variant of Tempranillo).
A deliciously ripe fruit loaded effort with plenty of early drinking appeal.
Made from 100% Tempranillo. Totally opaque inky black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Pronounced liquorice and ripe black cherry aromas rise from the glass over some background notes of lightly scorched vanillin cedar, a subtle earthy meatiness and spice. Full bodied the palate is boldly flavoured with rich ripe black cherries and liquorice that flood the mouth, and it give it a juicy feel, over an undercurrent of dried meats, subtle scorched earth and spicy vanillin cedar. Dry finish with faintly chewy tannins providing additional textural interest. Excellent concentration with a long ripe black cherry, liquorice, subtle scorched earth, dried meats and spicy cedar aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
