Product Ratings

James Suckling 91pt

Harvest

Intermittent picking due to unsettled weather and a higher botrytis pressure than usual. The accuracy and agility in taking decisions where crucial and clearly made the difference.

Technical data

VARIETY: 100% TEMPRANILLO (RED WINE)
LOCATION: RIBERA DEL DUERO (SPAIN)
ALCOHOLIC STRENGTH: : 14.5 degrees

Vinification

Extremely slow and gentle to extract the best tannins our 2013 Tempranillo can provide. Pigeages, long macerations (21 to 26 days long) and 12 months ageing in French oak on average (15% new) draw a huge personality Alonso del Yerro.

Terroir

The diversity of soils, placed over 800m of altitude and all of them very chalky from the red clay typical of Ribera to the gravel sands, results in the complexity and style of the Alonso del Yerro.
