Characteristics of Tomás Postigo

Tomás Postigo Crianza is a red wine produced by the Tomás Postigo winery in Ribera del Duero.

Tomás Postigo
is one of the oldest winemakers in Ribera del Duero. It began working in 1984, and brought several innovations in how to develop drip irrigation, the use of French oak for aging or working with movement using gravity.

Tomás Postigo Crianza
is a blend is made with Tinto Fino as the main variety, and complemented with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.

The grapes come from a selection of small farms located in different locations in the Ribera del Duero, with diverse but predominantly calcareous and sandy loam soils with stones and gravel. The harvest is done manually in small boxes of 12 kg to ensure good grapes on arrival at the winery.

The grapes are destemmed and passed to stainless steel tanks by gravity, without squeezing. Each plot is done separately. The malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels and tanks before being aged in 225 litre French oak barrels for 12 months.

Finally the blend of all the wines obtained from each plot is done to complete the outcome. Tomás Postigo Crianza is naturally clarified with egg white prior to bottling.

Tasting notes Tomás Postigo

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
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.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Sight Brilliant cherry coloured. Nose Prominence of black and red fruit with sweet spices such as vanilla and memories of undergrowth. Background of elegant toasted oak. Taste The taste is fresh and very well structured. Tasty and powerful. Very intense fruit, herbs and liquorice. Ripe and sweet tannins. A long, lingering finish.
Sight By sight it is a pretty red cherry colour, very bright. Nose Complex on the nose with a ripe black fruit presence, pepper notes, vanilla, mineral notes and chocolate. Taste Pleasant entrance on the palate with present tannins but in-tune and sweet. Very tasty and creamy. A long finish.
