Characteristics of Hacienda Monasterio Reserva Especial

Hacienda Monasterio Reserva Especial is a wine from the Ribera del Duero D.O. It is produced by the Hacienda Monasterio winery in Pesquera del Duero, a region with a strong heritage in viticulture.

The Hacienda Monasterio Winery is under the direction of Peter Sisseck, a famous winemaker known for creating one of the most famous Spanish wines on the global stage; Pingus.

Hacienda Monasterio Reserva Especial is a blend of 2 types of grape, Tinto Fino, a typical variety from Ribera del Duero, plus a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon.

The grapes used to make this wine come from the Hacienda Monasterio estate, which is located in the Douro Valley in the Golden Mile of the Ribera del Duero, an area of ​​just over 100 kilometers along the Douro River where there are countless wineries. The Hacienda Monasterio estate is located on a slope and covers an area of ​​160 hectares, 78 of which are used by vines. The soil is mostly chalky, which results in a finesse and elegance in the wines.

Hacienda Monasterio ensures that produce their wines in an ecological manner which is respectful to the environment, and are certified by the CAECIL (Ecological Agriculture Council Castilla y León). No herbicides, pesticides nor chemical fertilizers are used on the vineyards. The fertilizer that used is an organic fertilizer, that is made from residues coming from the plant itself and sheep manure.

The harvest of the grapes is carried out manually, they are then transported to the winery in small plastic boxes that ensure that they arrive in top condition and do not before arrival. On arrival, the best bunches are again manually selected. Before fermentation, the skin of the grape is removed. Fermentation is undergone using indigenous yeasts at a controlled temperature of 28-32°C. After the fermentation has finished, maceration takes place for two or three weeks to achieve maximum extraction of the tannins.

Tasting notes Hacienda Monasterio Reserva Especial

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.
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.
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.
Sight Very intense and brilliant ruby colour with violet rim. High robe. Nose On the nose it is complex with ripe black fruit, spices and mineral notes that are supported by calcareous soils. Taste On the attack it is balanced and elegant. A fruity load with toasted notes. Soft tannins and a long after taste. Certain mineral touches. Very persistent.
