Product Description
Details

The La Asperilla estate is located at an altitude of 850 metres above sea level in the town of Peñafiel, in the heart of the northern Spanish province of Valladolid. The estate comprises 18 hectares of organically farmed Tinto Fino vineyards planted in 1994.

This is the birthplace of Austum ecológico. This Spanish red wine comes from low-yielding vines that produce grapes with high concentrations of phenolic compounds, which give the wine a bolder structure and a more intense colour.

Owned by Bodega Tionio, a brand of the Catalan Parxet Group, the vines grow in soils composed of sand and gravel, along with some parts of limestone and loam. Climate in that zone of Ribera del Duero is Continental, with harsh winters and cold summers.

Human intervention there is reduced to a minimum. No chemicals are used in order to prevent diseases and plagues. When used, all fertilizers are of animal origin.

Selected and destemmed, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

Finally, Austum 2018 was aged for 6 months in fine grain French oak barrels from Allier.

Appearance

The organic red wine Austum has a young, bright cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

This varietal Tinta Fina exhibits a medium-high aromatic intensity, typical of a young organic red wine. Vivid aromas of violets and wild berries, nuanced by toast and spices.

Palate

Fresh and pleasant, this red wine of Bodegas Tionio, a brand of Grupo Parxet has a nimble palate, though one not lacking a certain structure. We find some floral and spicy remembrances, along with ripe, sweet tannins, a good acidity and a long, slightly mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

From the very heart of Ribera del Duero, Austum 2018 is fresh, pure and straightforward. A highly drinkable organic Ribera.
