Resalte Vendimia Seleccionada, Tempranillo, Ribera Del Duero, Spain, 2017Regular price £18.00
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.
The grapes come from a vineyard situated on a limestone plateau at 1,000 metres above sea-level; the highest in the region, which contributes to the fresher style of this 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 privileged location.
