ANNOUNCING: A brand new BARGAIN, Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Ébano 6

We are truly delighted to introduce our newest acquisition, meet …

2010 Ébano 6 Tinto Fino RRP $29

Ébano is a property owned by esteemed Rias Baixas producer, Valmiñor. We have been working closely with them over a number of years on developing this wine, and have been very happy with their results from 2008 onward. Our first chance to ship and introduce to the TSA portfolio coincides with the launch of the 2010 vintage. Below is my tasting note:

2010 Ébano 6 Tinto Fino:

Typicity, typicity, typicity … Dark cherry and spiced plum fruits in a leathery-earthy-mineral nose, with a lovely dark ground anisey spice accompaniment. It’s open and gentle, regional and varietal, not fruity, not oaky, and with that special sense of ‘line’ which characterises the super-duper 2010 vintage. No raw edges, it’s equal parts groovy, succulent cherry fruit, savoury, earth and mineral. Great bang for buck, stylish, regional+varietal. Made from 100% local family Tempranillo, the Tinto Fino of Ribera del Duero and aged 6 months in French barriques after fermentation temperature-controlled in stainless steel.
