Characteristics of Rolland Galarreta Ribera

Rolland Galarreta Ribera is a red wine from the D.O Ribera del Duero by Rolland Galarreta. This is a blend of the varieties Tempranillo (85%) and Merlot (15%).

The vineyards are the property of Bodegas Valtravieso, which measure around 73ha and grow at 915 meters above sea level, only the best plots of land are chosen.

The vines have an average age of 35 years and planted in stony soils, low in organic matter.

The grapes are selected in two stages: in the vineyard and in the winery. The grapes for Rolland Galarreta Ribera are placed in the tanks whole after having been destemmed.

The grapes are also placed into oak casks with the cap submerged, here, a long maceration process is performed at low temperatures.

Pump overs are completed in order to extract the desired polyphenols from the must, this is all done by hand.
Rolland Galarreta Ribera undergoes a pressing by a pneumatic press vertically. Before ageing, the wine is malolactically fermented in younger than 4th year French oak barrels.
Finally Rolland Galarreta Ribera rests for 10 months in French oak barrels. Before being bottled the wine is not filtered.

Michel Rolland, the famous French oenologist and Javier Galarreta, a Spanish businessman well-known to the wine world, decided to join forces and start this project.

The result, they produce three excellent wines from the three designations of origins from which they operate: D.O. Rueda, D.O. La Rioja and D.O. Ribera del Duero.

Tasting notes Rolland Galarreta Ribera

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.
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.
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.
Sight Dark and intense cherry colour with ruby touches. Nose Smooth and balanced notes. Presence of spicy and fruity touches. Taste Full-bodied and concentrated, the wine is very elegant and complex. Fleshly with silky tannins, structured and has an attractive finish.
