Dominio de Tares Bembibre 2005

Dominio de Tares Bembibre 750ML 2005    
Sku: 12086

Vineyards
Planted on the southern facing slopes of the Bierzo region in northwestern Spain, these bush vines were planted 85 years ago using the gobelet training system with a density of 3000 vines/hectare. The soil is made up of decomposed gravel and slate. Although the vineyards are not certified organic, Dominio de Tares does all it can to respect the environment in its viticultural practices.

Winemaking
Harvested by hand, an immediate pre-fermentation cold-soak took place for 3 days in stainless steel tanks at 12C. Alcoholic fermentation followed in stainless steel tanks over a period of 25 days at sub-26C temperatures with daily pump-overs and delestage. The wine was aged in new French oak barriques for 15 months, during which time it underwent a complete malolactic fermentation. After it was fined and filtered, the wine aged an additional 15 months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting Notes
On the nose, powerful aromas of red berries, specifically raspberries and cherries, and plum. Floral hints, mixed with tobacco are evident as well. It is very well-structured on the palate with impeccable balance. A rich, elegant, long finish expresses excellent acidity. Toasted notes of exotic spices linger on the tongue.

Food Pairings
Pairs well with grilled steaks and full-flavored roasted meats, such as lamb and venison.
