Characteristics of Tierras de Cair

Tierras de Cair is a red wine made by the Dominio de Cair winery in La Aguilera (Burgos). D.O. Ribera del Duero.

Dominio de Cair is the project by Luis Cañas, the Rioja winery, in Ribera del Duero that began to take shape in 2008 and culminated with the construction of the winery in 2012.
Here, Dominio de Cair has old vineyards, some of them over a hundred years old, with little production but a lot of character. This, together with a specially designed winery and with the most modern oenological techniques, allows them to produce their excellent quality wines with all the character of the area where they are born.

Tierras de Cair is a wine made with Tempranillo grapes from different plots that are more than 60 years old, located in areas that are at a high altitude and with a low production.
Harvesting is by hand into boxes, Once in the winery the grapes pass through a double selection table, bunches and berries, before fermenting in oak vats. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in new French oak barrels where the wine remains for 24 months. Before coming to market, it stands for a minimum of 18 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes Tierras de Cair

Tierras de Cair 2012 is a mature meaty and structured red wine. An excellent vintage for this wine that expresses itself emphatically. On the nose the aromas of ripe black fruit are displayed between a very elegant roasted base note and the distinguished spicy notes. In the mouth it starts with intensity, and glides over the palate in a majestic and exuberant way.
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.
The 2009 vintage started with a winter of low temperatures, which gave way to a cool spring. A dry summer, with warm days and mild nights, and great temperature changes between day and night, led to very balanced, complex and concentrated grapes. As for climate, it was the perfect vintage. This influenced the health of the grapes, which was excellent. Therefore, the wines from this vintage have a good acidity, which is responsible for long-lived wines with a good structure. And generally, responsible for very fruity wines with fresh red fruit that stands out. One of the great vintages of this region.
