Characteristics of Bosque de Matasnos Etiqueta Blanca

Bosque de Matasnos Etiqueta Blanca is a red wine made by the Bosque de Matasnos winery in the Ribera del Duero.

Bosque de Matasnos Etiqueta Blanca is a blend of Tempranillo with a small proportion of Merlot. The grapes come from vineyards of Bosque de Matasnos, a farm planted at 950 metres of altitude with old vines over 60 years old, on typical soils of the Ribera del Duero: sandy clay loam soils and poor in organic matter.

At almost 1000 metres above sea level, frosts are common in the region of Ribera del Duero. Although Bosque de Matasnos in the middle of a well-ventilated plateau and sheltered by a forest of oaks and pines, which provides great protection against frost.

The temperature difference between day and night in times of maturation can reach 20 ° C, helping to facilitate a correct ripening of the grapes.

The whole process, from the vineyard to the winery, is focused on producing a quality product. In the vineyard more than 50% of bunches are cut, reducing the amount of the crop but increasing the quality of the final product.

Bosque de Matasnos has small yields per hectare of not more than 3.500kg / hectare, well below the maximum 7.000kg allowed by the denomination. The grapes are manually harvested at optimum ripeness, and a first selection of clusters is carried out.

The grapes are transferred to the winery in small boxes of 10 kg, avoiding unwanted breaks in the clusters.

In the cellar, the grapes are cooled overnight in chambers at 6 °C, in order to preserve all characteristics.

The next day a second cluster selection is performed, rejecting those that are not in perfect health.

Grape fermentation occurs through a conveyor, avoiding the use of pumps which may produce undesirable breaks, at a low temperature.

Bosque de Matasnos Etiqueta Blanca
goes through an aging for 12 months in new French and American oak.

The result is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero which is fresh, fruity and with a perfect integration of wood.

Tasting notes Bosque de Matasnos Etiqueta Blanca

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.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
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.
Sight A nice cherry colour with purple reflections. Nose Good intensity and aromatic complexity. Strong presence of black fruit with delicious hints of liquorice, flowers, smoky notes, coffee and cocoa. Taste A good entry into very fresh and fruity mouth. With good structure and acidity. Powerful but gentle tannins. Some spices like pepper and cloves appear. Long finish with some dairy memories.
Sight Intense red colour with violet reflections. A very high robe. Nose On the nose it is intense, mainly ripe fruit (plum and black fruit) with wood notes. Subtle nuances of caramel and cinnamon. Taste On the palate it has a good acidity that is well balanced with flavours of mature fruit. It is pleasant and presents sweet and ripe tannins.
