Cillar de Silos

Ribera del Duero

'Estate' Tinto Fino 2015

This is our favourite lamb wine - it's just dying to cut some fat! Old vine fruit is gently fermented and sensibly extracted then aged a year or so in older French oak. Very little is 'done' to affect this gentle, natural and characterful expression. Juicy, and alive, this earten beauty has ginger in blueberry, delicate bark-balsam and fine satin florals. The pippy mulberry fruit is cut with anise and red heather, dreamy earthiness and nutty tannin aromatics. It's perfectly balanced in the mouth, with the generous inky blue fruit profile cut by admirable fruit tannin, finely judged oak, natural spice and acid. Gorgeous, fluid and long.
