The old, venerable grapevines of this Spanish red wine grow at an altitude of 950 metres above sea level. They are over 80 years of age.
Harvested by hand during the first half of October, the grapes were destemmed, gently pressed and fermented in concrete tanks with selected yeasts and stirrings performed on a daily basis. After 2 to 3 weeks, this Crianza red wine was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 24 months.
Decant Oráculo 1 hour before drinking.

Enterwine is proud to announce that it has the exclusive distribution of Oráculo 2010 in Spain.
The wine Oráculo has an intense ruby colour wih a garnet rim.
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.
Savoury, intense and velvety, smoothed by the years and reaching its peak, Oráculo by Hammeken Cellars shows a splendid fruit content, 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.
