Tasting notes Tilenus Mencía Roble

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 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
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.
Sight Cherry red with maroon tones. Nose Fruity and toasted wood notes on the nose. Taste A flavourful wine on the palate.
Sight Cherry red colour with maroon tones. Nose In the nose, it shows fruity aromas and aromas of toasted woods. Taste In the mouth, it is an extremely tasty wine.
Sight Intense ruby red colour with violet edges. Clean and bright wine. Nose Intense and pleasant aromas among which the notes of ripe fruit (which turn into notes of liquorise fruit) are mixed with the aromas provided by the oak during the ageing: spices, elegant toasted aromas and fresh balsamic touches. All of these apper on a light mineral background. Taste Powerful, tasty, light and fresh wine with a velvety mid palate. Good acidity with strong balsamic aromas. Its mellow tannins are noticed in perfect harmony with the notes of ripe fruit. Very long finish that leaves fruity aromas.
Sight Wine of intense ruby red with purple hues. Nose Ripe fruit aroma with hints of toasted oak and fine provided that blend delicate aromas. Taste Balsamic reflecting mouth and the sweetness of the tannin with glycerin of the wine which gives it a velvety feel and very long aftertaste.

    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.
