Bodegas Gormaz Tempranillo Ribera del Duero Viña Gormaz 2009
Having pioneered the founding and international market penetration of Spain's Ribera del Duero region from the early 1980s, it is classical wines' distinct privilege to discover and introduce the Tempranillo from Bodegas Gormaz. A former cooperative, this recently-privatized company controls the majority of vines in Ribera del Duero's Soria province, the highest and least exploited of the region's subdistricts. Remaining just outside the focus of major commercial development, the vineyards here have not undergone restructuring, being for the most part 50 years of age and older and commonly propagated from vine to vine in the prephylloxeric "promiscuous" manner.
Food Pairings for Bodegas Gormaz Tempranillo Ribera del Duero Viña Gormaz
Unoaked, from carefully chosen lots suitable for drinking young. Deep wild berry aromas and mouth-filling flavor and length are provided by the old Tempranillo vines. Tannins are ample but balanced by the textural richness and juicy fruit. An incredible value.
20000 cases produced.
