Characteristics of Bardos Reserva

Bardos Reserva is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero produced by Bodegas Bardos, owned by the Vintae Group. It is a blend of Tinta del Pais (90%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).

The grapes used come from old vineyards of low production, chosen from the best plots of the Ribera del Duero.

Harvesting is done in the first week of October. The grapes are harvested in boxes of no more than 15 kilos to prevent the breakage of clusters. These are chosen, once they have arrived at the winery on a selection table.

Bardos Reserva is fermented and macerated in 15,000 litre tanks for about a month at a controlled temperature of 18ºC.

Subsequently the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. During this time, pumping occurs weekly and the barrels are monitored individually.

Bardos Reserva is aged for 16 months in new French oak barrels in underground cellars at a steady and controlled temperature of about 14°C.

The Vintae Group is known for innovation, energy and youth. They makes wines in nine different Spanish wine regions.

Tasting notes Bardos Reserva

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.
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.
Sight Nice cherry red with purple hues. Nose Intense. With notes of berries and hints of balsamic, spicy and chocolate. Taste Structured and intense. It shows great freshness and a long persistence.
Sight Cherry red with purple tones. Nose Great aromatic intensity, good complexity with forest fruits, balsamic notes from the Caberet Sauvignon, spices and chocolate. Taste Powerful, structured and ripe, but fresh, very long and persistent.
