Altos de Tamaron Roble is made from grapes of Tinta del País (Tempranillo) that are carefully selected from vines grown on gravelly, clay loam soils within the borders of Olmedillo de Roa, Burgos.
In the last 30 years, the Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero has emerged to challenge the crown of Spain’s greatest wine region; Rioja. Located in Spain’s northern plateau, this region covers four Castile and León provinces – Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. But, despite what its name may suggest, Ribera del Duero does not cover all of the villages along the River Duero. Ribera del Duero was granted its Denominación de Origen status in 1982 and today it has over 250 wineries and over 22,000 ha of vineyards. Most of Ribera del Duero’s production is red wine and only a moderate amount of rosé is produced. No white wines are permitted under the D.O. yet, but they will be soon. The region is characterised by its largely flat, rocky terrain.
Deep cherry colour with a violet hue. Rich fresh plum, cherry and berry fruits on the nose with fine toasted oak reminiscent of coffee and chocolate. The palate is broad, with expressive fruit, a touch of vanilla soft tannins and a lovely long finish.
Perfect with lamb chops, paté and game.
Between 16 -17ºC
The grapes are carefully selected before embarking on a further 10-day maceration; and fermented at a controlled temperature (24ºC) to ensure the optimum maximum aromatic potential. The wine is aged for 3 months in American oak barrels before bottling. The bottles are then aged in our cellar for 6 months.
