Product Description
Details

Produced by three wine lovers under the brand Hammeken Cellars, the wine Oráculo is a varietal Tinta del País (aka Tempranillo) from Ribera del Duero.

Amazingly, this Spanish red wine was produced from 80 to 120-year-old vines, grown at an altitude of 950 metres above sea level.

Harvested by hand during the first half of October, the grapes were destemmed, gently pressed and cold-macerated for 3 days. Then they fermented in tanks with selected yeasts for 25 days.

After that, Oráculo 2015 was transferred into new, 500-litre French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 24 months.

Decant this Crianza red wine from Ribera del Duero at least 20 minutes before drinking.

Enterwine is proud to announce that it has the exclusive distribution of Oráculo 2015 in Spain.

Appearance

The red wine Oráculo is high ruby wih a garnet rim.

Nose

Well-balanced, this Tinta del País from Ribera del Duero shows a wonderfully mature aromatic profile, exhibiting a seamless integration of some expressive, pure notes of black fruit - blueberries, bilberries and blackberries - with some hints of moka, cocoa, cigars and Moroccan leather, alongside some earthy, toasted and mineral overtones.

Palate

Savoury, intense and velvety, smoothed by the years and slowly reaching its peak, Oráculo from Hammeken Cellars showcases fruit of the highest quality, toasted and gently smokey, underpinned by a mineral and earthy character that points to an exceptional terroir. Super fresh, with a crisp acidity and some mild tannins, the wine has a very long, moreish finish.

Our personal opinion

A top-notch wine produced by a passionate and skilfull team, Oráculo 2015 is a much welcomed addition to our catalogue.
