Dominio de Tares Mencía Bierzo Baltos 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Hand-harvested in September, the grapes underwent a cold-soak prior to fermentation for 3 days in stainless steel tanks at 12°C. Fermentation also took place in stainless steel tanks for 18 days at sub-24°C temperatures with daily pump-overs. Full malolactic fermentation occurred as well. The wine was aged in 2nd-use French and American oak barriques for 6 months, followed by 6 months in bottle after it was fined and filtered.

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

Baltos 2007 - Dominio de Tares: Kenner stellen das Anbaugebiet Bierzo bereits auf ein Stufe mit Ribera del Duero oder dem Priorat. Dieser Rotwein aus der Rebsorte Mencia, die in dieser D.O. fast ausschließlich angebaut wird, erhielt bereits mit seinem ersten Jahrgang höchste Noten von der internationalen Fachpresse.Mit der tief-roten Farbe eines Bordeauxweines und einem violetten Farbton am Rand präsentiert sich der Baltos im Glas. Das ausdrucksstarke Bukett präsentiert viel reife Frucht, die von Veilchen und mineralischen Noten umhüllt wird. Am Gaumen wirkt der Wein sauber, elegant und frisch mit süßlich schmeckenden Tanninen und einer gut eingebundenen Säure. Weingut: Dominio de TaresRegion: Kastillien-León - D.O.

Tasting Notes:

An expressive bouquet with powerful aromas of ripe red fruits with hints of violets and minerals. On the palate, it is fresh, elegant and clean with plenty of delicious varietal flavors. The tannins are sweet and the acidity is well integrated.

Hand-harvested in September, the grapes underwent a cold-soak prior to fermentation for 3 days in stainless steel tanks at 12°C. Fermentation also took place in stainless steel tanks for 18 days at sub-24°C temperatures with daily pump-overs. Full malolactic fermentation occurred as well.
