Characteristics of PradoRey Élite

Excellent wine from the Ribera del Duero made of the clone Elite of the variety Tinta Fina, characterised by its small grains and thick skin. Its very low yield vines are grown in a single property. After a selection, grapes are fermented in steel tanks and undergo a long maceration. It was aged in Central Europe oak barrels for 14 months and rested in French oak cones for 6 months. Finally, this winen rested in the bottle for a few months before being launched to the market. This wine is only produced in years when the harvest is excellent, with a maximum production of 25,000 bottles approximately. It is recommended to decant this wine at least one hour before serving it. A wine with plenty of life ahead, which can be stored for many years. Great, intense, concentrated and complex wine. Very enjoyable.
Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites

Tasting notes PradoRey Élite

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.
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.
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 Intense cherry colour with maroon edges. Well covered wine with a high layer. Bright and elegant wine with elegant tears. Nose Intense and complex aromas. Its wooden aromas are very well integrated and stays in the background. After its elegant toasted notes, aromas of stewed ripe black fruit appear, mixed with a wide range of spicy hints (vanilla, pepper, cinnamon), nice mineral notes and intense balsamic nuances. A great herbal background is noticed all the time. Taste From the very start, a great wine is perceived. It has a wide and bulky attack and an excellent and long mid palate, with intense, very tasty aromas and a very dense, full bodied and silky texture. Its notes of fruit are highly noticeable. They are wrapped in creamy and balsamic aromas. A well-balanced wine with a good acidity and polished and well integrated tannins. Very long and persistent finish.  Very elegant wine.
