Characteristics of Tilenus Crianza La Florida

Tilenus Crianza La Florida is a red wine from the Bierzo made by Bodegas Estefania, a winery founded in Valtuille above and Pieros.

The climate in this area is continental but with Atlantic influences. A temperate climate is regulated by moisture, similar to Gallego and Castilla. The average annual temperature is 12.3ºC, with a minimum average temperature of 3.6 ° in the cold months and maximum of 23.6º in the warmer months.  

This wine is a varietal Mencia (100%) from "La Florida", an old vineyard with vines 60-80 years old, planted in glass trellises on steep slopes. The vineyards are on clay soil with boulders, at an altitude of 600-700m above sea level.

Regarding the process, after the manual harvest, a spontaneous fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Subsequently, the wine spends 12-14 months in French oak barrels which have been lightly roasted. The wine finally rests in the bottle for a long period of time, before going to market.

Serve at 16.0ºC

Tasting notes Tilenus Crianza La Florida

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.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

    Winery Estefanía

    Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.

    Imágenes y situación D.O. Bierzo

    Estefanía is named after the grandmother of its owners, the Frías brothers, and it was founded in 1999. Nevertheless, the relationship of the family with viticulture dates back to 1920, when the grandfather, Sebastián, planted 1,500 vines in the area of Toro. However, he abandoned his cultivation and moved to Burgos, and at the beginning of the new millennium the third generation advocated for El Bierzo and the Mencía variety. They entered the market with the range Tilenus, which currently has six different labels, each with its own personality and with the seal of the multifaceted oenologist from El Bierzo, Raúl Pérez.
