Characteristics of Finca Villacreces

Finca Villacreces is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero produced by Finca Villacreces.

The winery is part of Artevino Group, owners of several warehouses in different Spanish regions such as Izadi winery in La Rioja and Toro Vetus. The Finca Villacreces winery was founded in 2004 when the Artevino Group acquired the property. The Villacreces estate is considered one of the most spectacular estates in the area.

Finca Villacreces is a red wine, which bears the name of the estate and the winery, is a blend of Tempranillo (86%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Merlot (4%).

The grapes come from a selection of plots with low yields on a plot of 64ha located in Quintanilla de Onesimo, in the Golden Mile, a wine region famous for the quantity and quality of their wineries and wines.

The harvest is done entirely by hand in boxes of 15 kg during the second and third week of October. Once in the winery, a careful selection of clusters and grapes takes place.

For processing, after a complete stripping of the grape, a traditional fermentation takes place in stainless steel.

Tasting notes Finca Villacreces

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.
Finca Villacreces 2015 is a mature, expressive and elegant red wine. An excellent vintage that allows us to appreciate all the character and complexity of this typical Ribera del Duero wine. Aromas of ripe red fruit, with spicy notes and elegant toasted notes from its ageing. In the mouth, it shows volume and balance, with a generous mid-palate and a very long finish.
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.
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.

    Since its last stage, at Finca Villacreces they considered the option of carrying out viticulture according to the most significant integration elements, to be able to conceive and personalise their wines from the vineyard itself. With this premise, they thought of the need to acquire full knowledge on the nature and its environment. All the senses were involved: search, methodology, innovation and tradition, all with the aim of extracting the maximum identities from the terroir and the fruit.
