The grapes are sourced from over 60-year-old vineyards grown in the biodynamically farmed Finca Torremilanos estate -not an easy task, considering that Finca Torremilanos has 200 hectares of vineyards.
Hand-picked and carefully selected, the grapes were first macerated for 12 days in stainless steel tanks, oak barrels and concrete diposits. After that, this organic red wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts.
After that, the red wine Torre Albéniz Reserva 2018 was transferred into French oak barrels, where it was aged for 24 months.
Finally, this reserva red wine was bottled and aged for a further months before hitting the market.
It is important to decant this biodynamic red wine 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Torre Albéniz Reserva is merium purple with some reddish reflections.
This red wine from Tempranillo with a droplet of Tempranillo Blanco is nuanced and complex, carrying juicy cherries, wild berries and undergrowth, with some minty and gamey notes and hints of bitter cocoa, tobacco and dry earth.
Flavourful and layered, this wine of bodega Finca Torremilanos has an impressive, tightly-knit structure with fine-grained tannins, a steely acidity and some black fruit, liquorice and spices, carrying the wine to a mineral and balsamic finish of great persistence.
