Characteristics of Alonso del Yerro

Alonso del Yerro 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 is a single-variety wine of Tinta del País (Tempranillo) from vineyards planted on a wide variety of highly calcareous soils at an altitude of over 800 metres. We can find soils of red or sandy clay with gravel.
As for the production, long macerations of between 25 and 29 days take place. Finally, the wine goes through a 12-month ageing in French oak barrels.

Alonso del Yerro is a powerful, meaty and round wine. The perfect fusion of ripe red fruit aromas with the roasted aromas of the ageing process defines the fantastic nose of this wine. In the mouth, it is intense, with a voluminous mid-palate and an lightness that gives it a long and persistent finish.

Tasting notes Alonso del Yerro

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.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
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.
Sight Profound red colour. Nose On the nose it is intense with a clear prominence of ripe red fruits and floral aromas with spices and liquorice.
Taste On the palate it is concentrated and elegantly expresses the fresh fruit with toasted hints from the barrel. Silky tannins and long finish.
Sight Profound ruby red colour with maroon rim. Clean and bright. Nose Intense in the nose with notes of ripe red fruits prevailing. Well accompanied by spices and toasted aromas from its ageing in the barrel. Floral and roasted aromas elegantly fill the nose. Very aromatic. Taste Elegant on the palate expressing floral aromas and the licorice of the Tempranillo. Fresh fruit, with roasted notes from the barrel. Silky tannins and very persistent on the palate.

Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Intense cherry red colour with scarlet edges. Clean and bright wine with a high robe and abundant tears. Nose Before swirling the glass, very expressive notes of red fruit appear wrapped in sweet spices and milky notes with a very creamy texture. When it opens up, the red fruit is harmoniously balanced with the notes of very ripe black fruit wrapped in elegant toasted hints and a intense backgroudn of liquorice. Taste Full-bodied and well balanced wine from Ribera del Duero with a wide and bulky attack. It shows a very tasty, sweet and very creamy mid palate with great creamy aromas, surprising floral notes and a suggestive minerality that rounds this wine. Pleasant velvety texture and a nice freshness. Silky, very friendly tannins. Long and persistent finish which leaves hints of fruit jam.
Sight It has a bright red. Nose Aromas of red fruit, spice, licorice and minerals. Taste The step by mouth, it is balanced with hints of fruit and flowers.
