Finca Los Guijarrales is a single-vineyard red made with 100% Graciano grapes grown on river stones and red sands at high elevation facing north-northwest in the Ribera del Duero.
Grapes are hand harvested, de-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in steel vats for 10-15 days and 3 months of skin maceration and then raised 12 months in old finely-grained Bordeaux barriques without racking.
Shy to showcase aromas at first, it gradually opens up to deep and dark fruit scents, hints of graphite and slate together with the spiciness of black pepper. The work of and oxygen bring forward crispy scents of raspberry and cherry on a bed of cream, refreshed with balsamic hints of pine.
Fresh on the palate with soft and round tannins. Its well-balanced acidity provides tension in contrast to the ripeness of red fruit, delicate flowers and sparks of spices.
A long, persistent and complex wine that's still amazingly easy to drink.
