Finca El Peruco is a red wine made by Goyo García Viadero, in Gumiel de Mercado, D.O. Ribera del Duero.
Years ago, Goyo García Viadero decided to set out on a different path to that of the family winery, Valduero. Seeking the authenticity of native varieties in Castilla León, he restored old vineyards and reclaimed traditional practices in the vineyard rather than make use of modern viticultural techniques, which abuse herbicides and pesticides. He avoids using enzymes, non-native yeasts and conservatives in the winery.
This has led him to winemaking in three different areas: Ribera del Duero (Olmedillo de Roa, Villanueva de Gumiel and Anguix), in Cantabria in Valle del Liébana (Pumareña and Los Cos) and in Ribera del Arlanza.
Finca El Peruco is an estate in Olmedillo de Roa (Burgos), with an altitude of 860 metres, a northwest orientation and a notable Continental climate. The vines are goblet-trained on sandy, stony soil on clay, and Tinta Fina can be found mixed with a few strains of Albillo in the same vineyard.
It is harvested manually and ferments for 10-15 days with a 3 week maceration process. It ages for 17 months in used 225 litre barrels wihout being filtered or clarified.
Finca El Peruco is a wine with lots of character, it is fleshy and very long. The intensity of the Tempranillo grape is refined to perfection with a long ageing period in old barrels and the freshness of the Albillo grape.
