409 days of oak

This wine is a brilliantly modern interpretation of the Ribera del Duero region, Condado de Oriza ‘409’ is made from Tinta del País (Tempranillo) grapes from vines from only two plots around Olmedillo Roa. The wine spends 409 days in French oak, hence its name, but chooses not to mention the oak ageing or even the vintage on the front label. It has all the classic structural elements with wild brambly fruit, touches of violet and subtle notes of toast and spices from the oak barrels. On the palate, plenty of soft round tannins, a well-integrated acidity and complexity of fruit. The winemaking sees grapes from the old and young vines vinified separately; the young grapes ferment at very low temperature to extract as much fruit and floral aromas as possible; whilst the grapes from the old vines are fermented at 26-28 ºC to ensure optimal expression. Finally, the wines are blended and aged in oak (for the 409 days) before bottling.

Ribera del Duero

Good fruit flavours and bold but not too tanic. A nice Ribera.
