Conde de San Cristobal Ribera del Duero Reserva Especial 2018

Grape Varietals & Region: 100% Tinta Fina, from the "Las Callejas" vineyard on Ribera del Duero. Vine age of average 35 years, from the highest area of Pago de Valdestremero, on clay-calcareous soils.

Taste Profile: Intense cherry color with a garnet rim. Conde de San Cristóbal Reserva Especial is a single plot wine with a concentrated, deep and complex aroma, based on fresh fruit and mineral notes. On the palate, it is fresh and powerful, tasty, fatty, expressive and with a round and long mid-palate. A very fine balanced wine that reflects the nobility of the terroir of our vineyard.

Winemaking Process: We initially select the grape at the vineyard before harvesting by hand, using 12 kg crates. After passing through the selection table, grape bunches are de-stemmed at low speeds before entering the tanks by natural gravity. 50% of the fermentation process takes place in 4,500 kg stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 16 and 27 o C and the other 50% in French oak barrels. Once fermentation is complete, we leave the wine to macerate with the paste for two weeks. The wine is then aged for at least 18 months in medium and medium plus toasted French oak barrels from five different cooperages.
