Finca Sandoval Do 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Vanilla oak, dark powerful fruit, ripe blackberry and piquant spiciness. Good length and strong, warm finish. Drink 2010 to 2015. (RH)" (03/10) 16.5 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages WINERY: "Finca Sandoval is a cherished, personal project started in 1998 by renowned journalist and wine writer Victor de la Serna, who teamed up with winemaker Rafael Orozco. The property is sited within its own vineyards which are planted with Syrah and Touriga Nacional. These vineyards, located in the heart of Manchuela, have also seen the slow incorporation of some of the best native varieties in the region (Bobal, Monastrell, Garnacha, Garnacha Tintorera) in a bid to fufill a dream formed over 40 years of deep knowledge and understanding of the soils of the estate." -Winery

The best vineyards have historically played a large role in the Spanish wine world: see, for instance, the centuries-old valuation of the top Jerez pagos. But, starting in the mid-19th century, the development of Spain's wines took a different tack when the so-called bodegas industriales appeared on the scene: big négociant-type firms with very large productions of name-brand wines made with grapes –often, bought-in– from different places. In 2000, a group of small producers of single-estate wines from Old and New Castile got together to defend the personality which defines the wines from the best growths and to promote this culture of individuality which was being reborn in Spain. They founded Grandes Pagos de Castilla (Great Growths of Castile). This not-for-profit association became Grandes Pagos de España in 2003, reponding to the requests of many colleagues in other parts of the country who wished to make the single-growth concept better known and to seek excellence through the direct relationship between wine and its place of origin.

Der Star unter den Weinen vom Weingut Finca Sandoval ist zweifelsohne der nur in der 1,5 Liter Magnumflaschen erhältliche, extrem rare Sandoval Cuvée TNS. Ein kräftiger Wein mit Aromen von roten Früchten mit einem Hauch süsser Gewürze.
