Characteristics of Tares P3
Tares P3 is a red wine made by Dominio de Tares.
This great Bierzo wine is made with Mencía grapes from a small plot of land, very unique, with soils rich in pebbles and 100 year old vines with very low yields, but with very high quality grapes. Manual harvest. The grapes are selected in the vineyard and then at the winery. The wine ferments in American oak barrels where it stays for three months on its lees before going into new French oak barrels where it ages for 17 months. Production limited to only 4000 bottles. It is recommended decanting this wine an hour before serving. This red wine is suitable for ageing. A pure expression of the Mencía grapes and the region's terroir.
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental. The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.
The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather. What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine. The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
Dominio de Tares was a winery that entered the new national wine scene in the first years of this century, as it is a distinct reference of the modern Bierzo wines. Pioneer in the production of quality reds in El Bierzo, its Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas was the wine that best identified the singularity of the Mencía variety. From its first harvest, it placed D.O. Bierzo on the map of emerging areas with quality wines.
