Description

Conde de San Cristóbal Ribera del Duero Crianza 2019

Conde de San Cristóbal Ribera del Duero Crianza is clean and bright. This red stands out for its intense, deep and persistent nose. It is fresh and lively with fruit driven flavours like berries and plums. Round on the palate, with velvety mouthfeel and well-balanced acidity and a smooth touch of oak.

The estate is comprised from 7 different types of soils & micro- climates: sandy-loam, limestone-loam, clay, loam with layers of marl, sandy-clay, chalky-clay and river alluvial soils. The age of vines varies between 15 and 35 years.
Grapes are carefully classified on the selection table, then a low-revolution destemmer is employed, grapes are consequently transferred to the 22,500 kg fermentation tanks by means of gravity. A cold maceration is carried out at a low temperature (8ºC) for a period of 3-5 days which is followed by the alcoholic fermentation, lasting between 9 and 12 days at controlled temperatures (20-24°C). Finally, the wine undergoes a long maceration of the solids for 15- 20 days.
The handpicked and selected grapes come from the vineyard surrounding our cellar, therefore during harvest the time from the vineyard to the fruit reception is max. 30-40 min and so we avoid oxidation and spontaneous fermentation.
10 to 12 months in French oak barrels from different coopers, with subtle to medium-toast level.

Slightly stalky berry aromas on this wine lead to a firm palate that pulls inward due to dry tannins. Herbal plum and oak -pice flavors lose steam before showing a hint of early oxidation. The wine reverts to dry tannins on a finish with notable oak.
