The 2012 was made from younger Tempranillo grapes from the pebbly vineyards of Casa de Haro, Spain. Grapes have been grown and wine produced in this area for centuries but DO status was acquired only in 2003, making Ribera de Júcar the youngest DO in Spain. The grapes were completely de-stemmed before gentle crushing and finally cold temperature fermentation.
Cherry-coloured with a violet rim, this wine is nice and round on the palate with great acidity. This is a perfect partner to your next cheese plate or beef stew.
