Characteristics of Vizcarra Roble Senda de Oro
Vizcarra Roble Senda de Oro is a red wine from the D.O Ribera del Duero produced by Bodegas Vizcarra.
This winery was founded in 1991, located in Mambrilla de Castrejón (Burgos).
Vizcarra Roble Senda de Oro is entirely made of Tinta Fina (Tempranillo). The grapes originate from the estate Senda de Oro, the vines are 15 years old and planted on slopes and pruned by the goblet method.
Furthermore, the climate is a continental, this is translated in to large temperature differences between day and night, contributing to a better riper grape.
The harvest is realised by hand and transported in 15-20kg kg containers to a winery where the grapes undergo a second selection process.
Once at the winery, the must is fermented for 14 days at a 27ºC, with 3 daily pump overs.
Subsequently, after the second fermentation in barrel, the wine is aged for 7 months in French and American oak barrels.
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.
