Product Description
Details

Crafted by the oenologist Daniel Alba in the Yecla DO, La Máquina del Tiempo is a Spanish red wine made from a combination of two grapes and different vintages.

First of all, the wine was crafted from a blend of 85% Monastrell and 15% Syrah vineyards that are, respectively, 45 years of age and 15 years of age.

Interestingly, the Monastrell plants are grown in a tremendously arid environement with high levels of sun exposure. Moreover, the vines are ungrafted, so they convey remarkably well the soul of its terroir. All of them are certified organic.

Vinified in a traditional manner with indigenous yeasts, the wine was aged in 500-litre French oak barrels for 18 months.

We strongly suggest that you decant La Máquina del Tiempo 2014 from Yecla for 30 to 60 minutes before you drink it, as the wine needs time to express its full potential.

The production of this organic red wine from Yecla did not reach 10,000 bottles.

Appearance

The organic red wine from Yecla La Máquina del Tiempo has a bright, ripe cherry colour with a ruby rim.

Nose

After a while, this red wine by Daniel Alba slowly wakes up and begins to show notes of red berries, black fruit, strawberry candy, some vegetal sensations, hints of violets and cocoa and some touches of liquorice.

Palate

This blend of Monastrell and Syrah from Yecla is fresh, with a smooth, velvety body, well-integrated wood and notes of red fruit, herbs and balsam. Ripe tannins and long, gentle finish.

Our personal opinion

Quite astounding for its price, the organic red wine La Máquina del Tiempo 2014 will improve for some years, so be sure to get some extra bottles and store them in order to check its evolution.
