Red Wine Dominio del Bendito Las Sabias 2019
Availability: In stock
A varietal Tinta de Toro red wine, Dominio del Bendito Las Sabias is produced from ungrafted vines 45 to 80 years of age. They are planted in sandy soils in Pago de Jara, a Cru vineyard located near the village of Toro, the wine capital of DO Toro.
Meticulously harvested, the grapes were selected on site and on arriving at the facilities of bodega Dominio del Bendito, the personal project of French winemaker Antony Terryn.
Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in epoxy-lined concrete diposits in an extremely gentle manner. Given that the Tinta de Toro variety has a high natural concentration of phenolic compounds, the aim was not to extract too much tannin and colour from the grapes.
After that, this Spanish red wine was transferred into French and American oak barrels, where it was aged for 16 months. Finally, Dominio del Bendito Las Sabias 2019 was bottled unfined.
We suggest that you decant this Crianza red wine at least 30 minutes before drinking.

I'm very pleased it's very like the 2017 year, but even 0,5% stronger..., so big and bold with 16,5% alcohol.
For me, I'm in 'love' with it, wine with power, but also well in balance with its tannins and a great taste. I didn't decante it this time and it's getting away with it. When you want it to be a little more gentle, decante it for an hour or so.
For quality against is price, this is now my number 1 wine, absolutlely top!!!
In stock I'm having the years 2017 and 2018.
The 2017 is 16% strong and a bit tannin rich. For that year I advise decanting 1 to 2 hours before consumption.
The 2018 is a little stronger with 16,5%. It is fruitier and slightly sweet, not tannin rich, so decanting between 30 minutes to an hour is enough.
Both years are very tasty though and I can recommend them very much!
I'll be back again after I have the 2019 in stock and consumed.
