D.O. Ribera del Duero / Condado de Oriza
Condado de Oriza Gran Reserva
Only the very best Tempranillo grapes are selected to create this wine, whose grapes are selected from 40-year-old vines that produce no more that 4 to 5 small scattered clusters.
Best serve between 17 and 18º C. Open the bottle or decant for half an hour before serving.
Intense cherry red with an orange rim. A powerful and elegant nose with cherry and plum aromas, sandalwood, vanilla and a hint of pepper. On the palate, lots of ripe berry fruits, balanced tannins, subtle spice notes and a lovely long finish.
A perfect companion to venison, rabbit and lamb stews (well-seasoned with green pepper).
The grapes are carefully selected to macerate before fermentation for ten days. Fermentation at a controlled temperature (26-28 ºC) guarantees that the varietal expressions are obtained. The wine is then aged for 24 months in American and French oak barrels before bottling. The wine completes its ageing process in the bottle, where it remains for 36 months.
