$147.66 / case(12)
Vineyards & winemaking tempranillo grapes were hand picked from 30 year-old vines in stony vineyards – valdepenas means valley of rocks” – in late august/early september. The soils are clayey lime and there is a chalky layer which retains water to refresh the vines. Altitude helps moderate summer heat as the climate in valdepenas is classic continental with cold winters and long hot dry summers. Fermentation was at controlled temperatures (25-28º c) in stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days. The wine was then matured for at least twenty-four months in oak barriques with varying toasting levels. Vintage notes 2005 has been rated “very good” by the valdepenas do. Generally the climate and therefore grape harvest is remarkably consistent in this part of spain. Tasting notes an intense dark red shading to brick red at the rim. A range of different characteristics can be identified on the nose – black cherry fruit spicy notes of leather and musk tobacco and vanilla oak. Medium to full bodied with some finesse concentrated red fruit compote flavours and smooth mellow tannins on the finish. Food match: game roast beef and other grilled red meats rich vegetarian dishes and mature cheeses.” – bodegas navalon
