Product Description
Details

Produced by Bodega Otto Bestué, Finca Santa Sabina is a single estate Spanish red wine made in Somontano. Interestingly, the estate has belonged to the Bestué Family for centuries.

Made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Tempranillo, the grapes were meticulously harvested. Once in the cellar, they were destemmed and slightly crushed, after which they were macerated at a low temperature to foster the extraction of colour and tannin.

Alcoholic fermentation, followed by a long maceration, took place in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards, this red wine from Somontano was transferred into French and American oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 14 months. During the process, it was racked 3 times.

Undoubtedly, Bestué Finca Santa Sabina 2016 is a remarkable value.

Appearance

The red wine Bestué Finca Santa Sabina has a lively, medium-high cherry coloured robe with a ruby rim.

Nose

Intensely aromatic, this blend of Cabernet & Tempranillo is defined by exuberant notes of red and black fruit, alongside some delicate spicy hints, a touch of aromatic herbs, a spark of leather, some freshly ground coffee and some café latte candy remembrances.

Palate

The palate of this wine of Bodega Otto Bestué is elegant and attractive, with an excellent balance and some ripe, smooth tannins. The wine is big-boned, but not overblown, thanks to its great acidity. Very well crafted, this Somontano red wine suggests some inviting, delicately toasted wild berries, nuanced by some earthy and balsamic notes. Long finish.

Our personal opinion

Juicy and honest, Bestué Finca Santa Sabina 2016  will pair excellently with BBQ'd meat.
