Characteristics of Cepa 21

Cepa 21 is a red wine produced by the Cepa 21 Winery in the Ribera del Duero D.O. region. The winery is under the ownership of Javier and José Moro, also known as the owners of the famous Emilio Moro Winery, which is too situated in the Ribera del Duero D.O region.

Cepa 21 is made solely using Tinta Fina (100%) grapes. The grapes come from vines which date back 25 years, planted at an altitude of over 800 metre in the towns of Castrillo de Duero, Pesquera de Duero and Nava de Duero, which lie in the province of Valladolid.They are plots of soil of different limestone and clay layers. All of the vines come from a clone cuttings of ancient vineyards from Pesquera de Duero.

There is a dry continental climate, a very harsh climate that is characterized by a very rigorous and long winters where frosts are frequent.

Cepa 21 is produced in an ecologial manner. Mineral fertilizers are not used in production, only sheep manure is used, nor are any herbicides used.

Before the vinification process, the grapes pass a sorting table, this process is to remove the leaves, organic residue and defective bunches. After the grapes have been pressed, a cold maceration takes place. The wine is then fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks of 20,000 liters. Finally before being bottled, Cepa 21 is aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels

Tasting notes Cepa 21

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.
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.
2010 started with heavy frosts in winter and spring, causing a delay in the commencement of the growth cycle. Above all, this situation marked the vintage with a low yield harvest. This delay of the growth cycle was offset by a slightly mild but good ripening. This fact resulted in wines with greater structure, floral wines with very ripe fruit in compote, a little less acid than the 2009 vintage, but with an excellent quality and with a long life ahead. The low production and the excellent ripening helped classify this vintage as excellent.

Nose This wine is very intriguing in the nose. A broad range of aromas with black fruits such as blackberries and blueberries standing out.
