Characteristics of Ultreia Cova de la Raposa

Ultreia Cova de la Raposa is a red wine produced by Raúl Pérez in Valtuille de Abajo, León, in the D.O. Bierzo.

Raúl Pérez is a pioneer of both the Bierzo region as well as the Mencía grape variety. Born in Valtuille, he took the reins of the family winery where he began a meteoric career in the wine world, later becoming an advisor to wineries across the globe.

The wine Ultreia Cova de la Raposa comes from a single plot of pre phylloxera vines, planted princely with the Mencia variety (85%), as well as Garnacha Tintorera, Bastardo and others. The vineyard is south-facing and grown on sandy-limestone soils.

Ultreia Cova de la Raposa ferments in (500litre) barrels in whole clusters with its own yeasts, and left to macerate for 90 days. It is then decanted and left to age for 20 months in French oak barrels.

An exceptional vineyard, a long maceration with the skins and a subsequent aging make it a full complex red wine. Only 500 bottles a year are produced from this large plot. 

Alcohol: 13.5%
Serve at 16ºC
Pairing
Chicken with mint, Roasts, Goat cheese, Pork stew

Tasting notes Ultreia Cova de la Raposa

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.

Production area D.O. Bierzo

Winery Raúl Pérez

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.

Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture. He is also a consultant, apart from an oenologist and the most popular producer of unique wines in Spain. His name is known by a lot of good enthusiasts, and some of his wines are on the agenda of Robert Parker. However, his labels are produced in very small quantities, which makes his wine quite hard to find. He makes his own wines, wines for others and in collaboration with other people. He participates in family projects and other formal and informal ones. He breaks the rules, reaching the limits. He sometimes crosses the line and even crosses borders ... Not bad considering he wanted to become a doctor! Raúl Pérez Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture.
