Dominio de Tares Bierzo P3 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Hand-harvested in September, the grapes underwent an immediate pre-fermentation cold-soak for 3 days in wooden vats at 12°C. The juice then completed alcoholic fermentation over a period of 25 days at sub-26°C temperatures. Aging took place in new French oak barriques for 15 months, during which time it also completed malolactic fermentation. The wine was filtered and fined then aged in bottle an additional 15 months.

New Cepas Viejas, new technology, knowledge and passion for the wine is the presentation card of Dominio de Tares. Far away from foreigner varieties and focusing our efforts in the native Mencía and Godello varieties, we have brought out surprising wines because of their equilibrium and elegance; wines that cradled in noble woods fulfil our satisfaction. The tendering of an ancient vineyard, with vines rooted in the heart of the Bierzo; the manual harvest, cluster by cluster; and the time passing by the juice sleeping in French and American barrels, confer our wines with unique traits in the Spanish wine panorama. Our working philosophy, concentrating in the continuous effort to become better; and the commitment to our clients and consumers sums up the soul of this winery, founded in the year 2000. Founded only in 2000, Dominio de Tares was started by a group of young individuals from Bierzo, only one of whom, Amancio Fernandez, a highly acclaimed winemaker, was previously involved in wine. Despite the seeming lack of experience, they have become one of the region's leading producers. Their focus is on making wine from old vine Mencia grown high in the hills. Producing 500,000 bottles annually from 200 acres (75 acres of their own vineyards, and 125 acres leased), they are one of the largest in the region. Pedro Gonzalez replaced Fernandez as technical director (winemaker) two years ago. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Powerful bouquet with minerals, red and black fruit, and hints of violets. The fruit flavors are rich and complex, yet balanced by the firm acidity.

Hand-harvested in September, the grapes underwent an immediate pre-fermentation cold-soak for 3 days in wooden vats at 12°C. The juice then completed alcoholic fermentation over a period of 25 days at sub-26°C temperatures. Aging took place in new French oak barriques for 15 months, during which time it also completed malolactic fermentation. The wine was filtered and fined then aged in bottle an additional 15 months.
