2018 Erial Tinto, Bodegas Epifanio Rivera, Ribera del Duero

Original price was: £18.75.Current price is: £14.70. inc. VAT

Erial Tinto is one of the best value wines in Ribera del Duero, using fruit from 30-60 year old vines.

The winery was established by the Rivera-Aparicio family in 2004 and owns 20 hectares of superb vineyards in scattered plots in some of the best sites around Pesquera de Duero. The family have been grape growers in Pesquera for several generations and used to sell their grapes to Vega Sicilia!

The vines are truly ancient and were all propagated at the property from their own pre-philloxera clone and with many over 80 years old giving low yield of fabulously concentrated fruit. In a short space of time the wines have gained international recognition thanks to some fine press reviews in America.

Fermentations are carried out in wide shallow tanks to aid in tannin and colour extraction, before malolactic and maturation in oak, around three quarters French and a quarter American. The Tinto comes from 30-60 year old vines in the Erilion vineyard and is aged for 10 months in predominantly new barrels.

A powerful and pronounced nose of black cherry and liquorice. Full and rich on the palate with fine tannins and excellent length. A super glass of red!
