Rivas de Tereso

2015

In only its second year of existence, Rivas de Tereso is clearly an important bottling for lovers of New Spain! From a single vineyard planted to Tempranillo that ripens earlier and shows more minerality than the vineyards used for her entry-level Rioja. Fermented spontaneously (and very slowly) in 300-L anfora and then aged in a 2 year-old barrel for one year. Sandra says that fermenting in anfora allows her to "transmit and keep all of the flavors that I find in the grapes themselves into the wine."

"Assertive and convincing style with black fruit aromas and flavors in a very slick, layered and flavoursome palate. Very impressive balance and depth. Long, smooth tannins with peppery edges. Powerful and delicious. Best from 2020."
