Characteristics of La Hormiga de Antídoto

La Hormiga de Antídoto is a red wine made in D.O. Ribera del Duero by Bodegas Antídoto, in San Esteban de Gormaz, Soria.

Bodegas Antídoto was created by Bertrand Sourdais and David Hernando. Bertrand Sourdais was one of the founders of Dominio de Atauta. His career has been forged in large wineries, such as Álvaro Palacios or Château Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux.

The old vineyards of the winery are located in one of the coolest areas of Ribera de Duero, at an altitude of 1000 metres, in the province of Soria. These vineyards are cultivated organically.

La Hormiga de Antídoto is a wine made with Tinta del País from vineyards located next to the site Paraje del Hoyo. They were planted in 1922 at 950 metres of altitude, on sandy and clayey-calcareous soils.

After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed before fermenting in stainless steel deposits with native yeasts. Once the fermentation has ended, the wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels (Darnajou and Taransaud), 50% new and the rest of first or second use.

Tasting notes La Hormiga de Antídoto

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
La Hormiga de Antídoto 2016 is a mature, elegant and concentrated wine. In this vintage, the aromas of red fruit, floral notes, violets, with a touch of vanilla and cinnamon stand out on the nose. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, with a firm and creamy mid-palate and a slightly fresh finish.
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.
