Product Description

The wine Balbás 18 Crianza is the mid-level Spanish red wine of Bodegas Balbás. The origins of this family-owned winery from DO Ribera del Duero go back to the late XVIIIth century.

This varietal Tinto Fino or Tempranillo comes from vines grown in clay and sandy soils at altitudes between 830 and 800 metres above sea level, in the La Horra area, Burgos.

Hand-picked and meticulously selected, the grapes were fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. This red wine from Ribera del Duero was then aged in French oak barrels for 19 months.

Finally, the red wine Balbás 18 Crianza 2019 was bottled and further aged for some months before its commercial release.

Aerate this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Balbás 18 Crianza is medium purple with some ruby-coloured reflections.


This varietal Tinto Fino is balanced and richly nuanced, showcasing lively black cherry fruit, resin and pine needles, with hints of vanilla, pepper and cinnamon over an elegant mineral background.


Fresh and focused, this wine of Bodegas Balbás has a nice structure and an uplifting acidity, with a very long ending reminiscent of balsam, bright forest fruit and spices.
