Castroviejo Gran Reserva, 2008
85% Tempranillo , 10% Garnacha, 5% Graciano
|How it's made||
Special wine made with a selection of the best Tempranillo grapes from the "Castroreal" vineyard, a plot with vines over 60 years old. This wine is made following the traditional method of stemmed grapes and undergoes maceration for 24 days. The first three days are in the cold and then at a controlled temperature for the remaining 21 days. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak casks and subsequent aging on the lees in the same cask before continuing to age for a further 20 months in American oak casks with 24 months rounding off in the bottle.
Full, fairly complex and meaty in the mouth with a more than pleasant final touch marked by very silky, firm tannins. The aftertaste is long and lingering.
This wine would pair nicely with hearty dishes such as a nice beef stew or a meaty soup.
