Technical Info

Harvest

The lack of water coming from 2011 blocked some part of the vegetal development on the warmer areas. The warm and dry conditions during June-August anticipated a very low yields vintage. Fortunately, September provided enough water to give a great balance to the grapes. The warm character of the vintage gives concentration to the wines showing at the same time the quality of the fruit and a pleasant sensation.

Technical data

LOCATION: RIBERA DEL DUERO (SPAIN)
ALCOHOLIC STRENGTH: 14.5 degrees
BOTTLING: JULY 2014

The 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.

Vinification

Slow and gentle, in order to extract the best tannins offered by the 2012 subtle Tempranillo. Pigeages, long maceration (22 to 27 days), and around 12 months ageing in French oak (20% new barrels) resulted in an Alonso del Yerro with great personality.
