Finca Villacreces, Ribera del Duero DO
Let the Duero flow
Tastes like: Full Bodied. Plush. Spicy. Black Fruit. Toasted Bread. Wild Blueberries. Blackberry Liqueur.
And we have a real showstopper for you. Our mouths are watering just thinking about a glass of this epic wine.
Coming from the famed 'golden mile', in the heart of Ribera del Duero DO, Finca Villacreces farm organically and use natural treatments which result in a pure and really expressive plush wine.
The vineyards here are a mixture of soils: sandy, gravel, shingle and quartz. Each soil type contributes to different flavours in the fruit, as well as to very low yields of around just three tonnes per hectare.
The vineyards are planted with about 86% Tempranillo (mostly on the sandy vineyards, which give an attractive fleshiness to the wines), 4% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (mostly on the quartz and shingle, giving more mineral complexity).
They hand pick the grapes and then the varieties are then aged separately in French oak (Taransaud and Darnajou) for a period of 14 months after which the final blend was assembled and bottled.
The results are stunning, we are sure you will agree. Dammit I've given in and opened a bottle on a Monday night ...
