D.O. Ribera del Duero (Castilla y León)
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.
In the mouth it is pleasant, structured and comprehensive, with a clear prominence of red and black fruit. It has well integrated tannins and excellent acidity. Long finish.
Cherry colour with garnet rim. Clean and bright.
The nose has high aromatic intensity. Aromas of red fruit accompanied by toasted aromas from the oak and lactic notes.
