Bodega Hernando Y Sourdais Antidoto Tempranillo 2011
Antidoto' is the first release of a new venture, Hernando y Sourdais, headed up by winemaker Bertrand Sourdais. Bertrand has for a number of years been a noted winemaker in Ribera del Duero, having been responsible for Dominio de Atuata. Hernando y Sourdais is based in the little-known eastern sector of Ribera del Duero, which is dry, cold and very remote, known as Soria, a sub-region named after its main town. Bertrand's project is based in a little village called San Esteban de Gormaz, and is working with pre-phylloxera vines from antique vineyards (2000 years' heritage) organically grown at up to 1000m above sea level.
