Characteristics of Ausàs Interpretación

Ausàs Interpretación is a monovarietal Tempranillo wine from the D.O. Ribera del Duero produced by Ausàs Bodegas y Viñedos.

Ausàs Bodegas y Viñedos is a winery in Quintanilla de Onésimo, for which Vega Sicilia was the winemaker from 1968 to 1998. Xavier Ausàs has also collaborated with other highly prestigious wineries. He does not have his own vineyards but rather works with people he has known for more than 30 years, so that very high quality grapes can be guaranteed while leaving him free to express the typicity and potential of the Ribera from his point of view.

The vineyards that produce the grapes for Ausàs Interpretación are around 40 years old. Their soils are sandy and clayey-calcareous. The climate of the area is continental. The winery obtains different characteristics from the different plots that allows it to finally produce a complex and harmonious wine. It obtains the floral character in the grapes from the light soils, fruitiness in those from clayey ones, freshness in grapes from high altitude ones and a powerful character in those from calcareous ones.

Ausàs Interpretación is a wine that is aged for 16 months in new and used 225 and 500 litre oak barrels. A total of 20,000 bottles are produced.

Tasting notes Ausàs Interpretación

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
Ausàs Interpretación 2016 has aromas of wild black and blue fruit, berries, and toasted and spicy notes. On the palate it is fresh, powerful, elegant and balanced. It has a lingering finish.
