About 12 Linajes Reserva 2014
It is a wine from Viñedos y Bodegas Gormaz and the Denomination of Origin Ribera del Duero, born from a selection of plots with old strains of more than 80 years in Miño, Ines and Atauta and at an altitude of between 905 and 960 meters. The harvest is done manually, then the grape arrives to the winery, where the selection of the grape and its handmade production, ensured by the winemaker María José García, will begin. 25% of the newly finished wine performs its malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. Wine aging is 24 months in new French oak (70%); American (15%) of one year and (15%) of two years with refinement in bottle for at least 18 months.With a complex nose, predominance of mineral notes in a background of cherry jam combined with a subtle blend of roasted and smoked background. Powerful palate but with a step of silky and well-balanced tannins that make up a final that feels fatty with mineral and candied aftertaste. 12 Linajes Reserva has an elegant image, sophisticated and with personality, while the wine is represented in gold, accompanied by rescued symbols of the 12 Linajes shields, seal of the wealth oh Soria’s history.
About Valdelacierva Reserva 2014
Valdelacierva Reserva, from Bodegas Valdelacierva, is synonym of elegance and sophistication and an image with the essence of the winekamer, Emma Villajos. With a limited production of 40.000 bottles, it is a unique Reserva. It was born in vineyards of more than 50 years old and produced from a manual harvest, it has an aging of 24 months in American and French oak barrels and an after aging in bottle for 12 months. With an intense and complex nose, a moving cup is very harmonious with mineral notes typical of the terroir, dairy and ripe fruit due to its aging. The palate is sweet and wide on the entry. Its journey through the centre of the mouth is well structured and elegant. Its velvety and unctuous finish brings the dairy and mineral notes of its complex nose back.
