Description

Elegant and complex, the 2016 Selección El Grajo Viejo (single vineyard) is Bodegas Protos’ most exclusive wine, a pure expression of its terroir from the Ribera del Duero. Recently rated 95pts from Wine Spectator, it is produced from 70+ year old vines of Tinto Fino (the local name for Tempranillo). It is hand-harvested and aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months and a further 12 months in bottle prior to release. This is a wine not to be missed!

Estate

Originally known as the Cooperatia de Pañafiel in the year 1927, the Bodegas Protos winery was the first winery of the Ribera del Duero. This project started with the union of some of the best Spanish winemakers at the time and through their grand efforts and perseverance for each wine vintage, they became one of the best wineries of Spain. The name “Protos” comes from Greek to mean “first.” This name brings back the fact that they were the first winery of Peñafiel, Spain, founding the winemaking of the Ribera.
