Characteristics of Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas

Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas is a red wine made by Vineyards and Winery of Dominio de Tares, one of the wineries to note in the Bierzo region located in San Román de Bembibre.

The climate in this region is continental yet mild due to moisture from the Atlantic. Temperatures range from between 3.6° C in winter and 23,6º C in the summer. This wine comes from a single variety of the Mencia grape, from vines more than 60 years old, planted on south-facing slopes where the soil contains calcareous clay, slate and gravel. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level. As for the ripening process, after the stemming and crushing of the grapes is carried out, alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks for 15 days at a controlled temperature of 30° C. Subsequently, the must undergoes malolactic fermentation in American oak barrels. Maturing takes 9 months in American oak barrels (Missouri and Virginia) and French oak barrels (Allier & Nevers), the barrels are both new and pre-owned.

Serve at 17ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.
Sight A deep and intense cherry colour. Nose

On the nose, the wine presents the aroma of dark candied fruits, together with notes of leather. There also appear notes of fallen leaves and candied fruits of the forest. An enjoyable aftertaste.

Production area D.O. Bierzo

Winery Dominio de Tares

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.

Dominio de Tares was a winery that entered the new national wine scene in the first years of this century, as it is a distinct reference of the modern Bierzo wines. Pioneer in the production of quality reds in El Bierzo, its Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas was the wine that best identified the singularity of the Mencía variety. From its first harvest, it placed D.O. Bierzo on the map of emerging areas with quality wines.
