Characteristics of Viña Sastre Rosado
Viña Sastre Rosado is a rosé from the appellation of origin (D.O) Ribera del Duero produced by the winery Viña Sastre. This monovarietal from Tinta del País.
The grape Tinta del País originates from vines from the winery´s vineyards that are between 17 to 30 years old. The parcels of land are located up at 800 to 840 meters above sea level in the towns of Horra and Roa in the province of Burgos.
The cultivation and harvest of the Viña Sastre Rosado is realised in an artisanal manner, without adding any artificial substance.
Viña Sastre is one the most important family run wineries of the whole Spanish winemaking panorama. It was founded in 1992, but its tradition dates back to the 1950´s.
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.
