Producer Note

Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel is an award-winning boutique winery specialising in wines produced from Tempranillo. Established in 2000, it is located in Peñafiel in the heart of the DO Ribera del Duero. They source their grapes from 80 hectares vines - among them some of the finest vineyards in Ribera – which deliver a diversity of terroirs, enabling them to achieve remarkable complexity in their wines. Since its inception, Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel has adopted the philosophy of making fine wines of the highest quality, combining state-of-the-art winemaking with traditional methods in the vineyards to craft modern, complex and balanced wines.

Vintage

2014 was a very good vintage. The grapes reached a fine level of maturity with deep colour intensity and good maturity of tannins.

Vineyard

The grapes come from six villages in the Ribera del Duero, from vines with an average age of 30 years old. Each plot has a different soil structure which imparts complexity in the resulting wine. The vines are carefully tended throughout the year, with patience, specialised craftsmanship and manual work. Emphasis is placed on keeping the vine healthy, with winter pruning, bunch thinning and shoot thinning all taking place to capture the personality of the terroir. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimum maturity. They follow a philosophy of keeping yields low and strive to keep the soils healthy, which allows the grapes to fully express the characteristics of their terroir.

Winemaking

Vinification takes place purely by gravity, without the use of pumps and a philosophy of minimal intervention is followed to respect the characteristics of the fruit and its provenance. Fermentation took place at carefully controlled temperatures with several tastings per day to achieve the desired characteristics, culminating in 23 days maceration. The wines were transferred to French (80%) and American (20%) oak barrels to mature for a minimum of 14 months, prior to the final blending.

Tasting Note

A complex wine full of finesse, with fruity notes of blackberry, cherry and liquorice enveloped in exquisitely integrated oak. A full bodied palate with ripe tannins finishes with textured, long lasting depth.

Serving Suggestion

Roasted lamb chops in a sea salt and crushed garlic rub or roasted red pepper casserole.
