Characteristics of Tomás Postigo 5º Año

Tomás Postigo 5º Año is a red wine made with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and Merlot varieties produced by Tomás Postigo in the D.O. Ribera de Duero.

The Tomás Postigo winery started in 2008, when Tomás Postigo, a chemical researcher and one of the pioneers responsible for consolidating the appellation of origin since 1984, decided to start making his own wines. It is worth noting that it is the first winery to receive the Huella de Carbono, an ecological award that guarantees sustainable, ecological practices that do not harm the environment.

The Tomás Postigo 5º Año vines are planted in mainly limestone, loamy and sandy soils with stones and pebbles, at an altitude of 750 to 1,000 metres above sea level. The harvest is carried out at the optimum point of maturation into small 10 kg boxes and taken straight to the winery.

In the winery, the grapes pass over the manual selection table and alcoholic fermentation takes place with native yeasts. Tomás Postigo 5º Año ages for 12 months in French oak barrels. 30 different wines are made, some of which undergo malolactic fermentation in barrels. It is then refined in the bottle for 40 years.

Tomás Postigo 5º Año is only made using exceptional vintages. Elegant, modern and well integrated, everything they need to be a great Ribera de Duero.

Tasting notes Tomás Postigo 5º Año

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.
Tomás Postigo 5º año 2014 is a mature red wine with aromas of ripe black fruit such as plum and blackberry. It has mineral notes and spicy nuances of pepper, vanilla and cedar. There are also subtle touches of black liquorice and chocolate. On the palate it has a sweet and creamy beginning that becomes broad and flavoursome. The retronasal smell brings back the ripe fruit and pleasant roasted touches.
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.
2010 started with heavy frosts in winter and spring, causing a delay in the commencement of the growth cycle. Above all, this situation marked the vintage with a low yield harvest. This delay of the growth cycle was offset by a slightly mild but good ripening. This fact resulted in wines with greater structure, floral wines with very ripe fruit in compote, a little less acid than the 2009 vintage, but with an excellent quality and with a long life ahead. The low production and the excellent ripening helped classify this vintage as excellent.
