Characteristics of Alonso del Yerro Maria

Alonso del Yerro María is a red wine produced by Viñedos Alonso del Yerro in Roa (Burgos), within D.O. Ribera del Duero.

In 2002, husband and wife, Javier Alonso and María del Yerro moved to the Santa Marta farm (Roa, Burgos), in the D.O. Ribera del Duero, with a clear enthusiasm for making quality wines. Assisted by the Bordeaux oenologist Stéphane Derenoncourt, they will soon make a name for themselves in the winemaking scene of their area.
Currently Alonso del Yerro vineyards has 22 hectares of vineyards, a set of plots planted in the late 1980s, at an altitude of 800-840 metres, all cultivated by the staff of the winery with the utmost respect for the vineyard, the soil and the environment.
This way of working and a rigorous selection of the best grapes allows Viñedos Alonso del Yerro to produce its wines with outstanding quality.

Alonso del Yerro María is a wine made with Tempranillo from two different plots. One of them is planted on clayey-calcareous soils and the other one, on calcareous gravels.
The harvest is performed manually and then, the grapes go through a strict selection process in the winery, where the two plots are vinified separately. The fermentation and maceration of the must takes place in wooden vats for 25 days. This wine is aged in French oak barrels for 15 months.

Tasting notes Alonso del Yerro Maria

The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
Alonso del Yerro María 2014 is a powerful, intense and elegant wine. On the nose, the ripe black fruit aromas stand out, with the distinct toasted notes of the ageing. In the mouth, it has volume and power, an elegant tannin with a dry and refined finish.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
2010 started with heavy frosts in winter and spring, causing a delay in the commencement of the growth cycle. Above all, this situation marked the vintage with a low yield harvest. This delay of the growth cycle was offset by a slightly mild but good ripening. This fact resulted in wines with greater structure, floral wines with very ripe fruit in compote, a little less acid than the 2009 vintage, but with an excellent quality and with a long life ahead. The low production and the excellent ripening helped classify this vintage as excellent.
