Characteristics of Arzuaga Reserva Especial

Arzuaga Reserva Especial is an excellent red wine by Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro in the D.O. Ribera del Duero.

A coupage of Tinta del País (95 percent) and Blanca del País (5 percent). The grapes come from centenarian vines traditionally farmed in clayey, limestone-rich soil at 900 metres above sea-level.
The soil and harsh Spanish weather result in low yields but highly concentrated grapes.
The harvest takes place manually and the grapes are selected without being de-stemmed before barreling.
Alcoholic fermentation takes place in wooden barrels while malolactic fermentation occurs in French new oak barrels.
Arzuaga Reserva Especial is aged for 24 months.
Apart from careful decanting, we recommend allowing the wine plenty of time to air out in the glass prior to drinking.

Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Mature cheese, Roasted Pork, Stews, Game birds, Small game

Tasting notes Arzuaga Reserva Especial

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.
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.
Arzuaga Reserva Especial 2011 is a mature, balanced and full-bodied red wine. This vintage once again reveals the excellent balance between structure and elegance. On the nose the toasted aromas of aging, roasted elements, leather and chocolate stand out, in harmony with ripe red fruit and spicy notes.
Sight A reddish-purple appearance that is both clean and bright. Nose Aromas of dark fruit and precious woods such as cedar together with hints of black liquorice. Taste A balanced wine. Soft and pleasant texture.

As in all European countries, many Spanish wines owe their reputation to the efforts of some traditional families and some large companies that have kept two basic requirements: quality and personality. These family companies have managed to gather their own heritage that allows them to produce wines "at home", with all the control guarantees. This is the case of this laudable winery, Arzuaga Navarro. Since its early days, at the beginning of the 90s, harvest after harvest they have produced wines with the seal of the house, and with the unequalled style of Ribera del Duero.
