VT Ribera del Queiles (Aragón)
Guelbenzu Vierlas is a red wine blend of Merlot and Syrah varieties produced by Bodegas Guelbenzu as the table wine, Ribera del Queiles, in Zaragoza, Spain.
The grapes used to make Guelbenzu Vierlas come from the La Lombana estate in Vierlas, which has soils composed of gravel and sand and where vines with an average age of 20 years grow. The bunches ferment for about 12 days in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures and the resulting wine is aged for six months in barrels, where 30% are French oak and 70% American oak.
Thanks to Bodegas Guelbenzu, the initiative to create the table wine denomination for Tierra Ribera del Queiles, started in 2003, was consolidated. Guelbenzu Vierlas offers us the perfect introduction to wines which come into being south of the Ebro River, between Aragón, Navarra and Rioja, a 22-kilometer stretch of land caressed by the Cierzo winds which offers wines with body, character and ageing capacity.
Guelbenzu Vierlas 2017 is a red wine which on the nose offers aromas reminiscent of ripe black and red fruits accompanied by a floral and spicy background. On the palate, it’s concentrated and powerful, with good length. A flavorsome, fresh and balanced red wine.
