Dominio de Artiga – RESERVA 2010
Denominación de Origen Protegida (DOP) Valdepeñas, Spain
As one of the country’s oldest winemaking regions, recognised as an official appellation of origin since 1932, Valdepeñas is home to some of Spain’s oldest vines. Some of our Tempranillo vines date
back to the year of our winery’s foundation in 1904 and their precious grapes are blended with those of our younger ones.
Clay and lime soils with fiercely cold winters and hot, dry summers.
The Tempranillo grapes were hand picked from our younger trellised vines and our unsupported old vines in early September (average age of vines at time of harvest = 35 years). Slow fermentation at controlled temperatures (20-22°C) helps to preserve and develop the naturally fruit-driven intensity of the Tempranillo grapes before the wine is decanted into 225L oak barrels to begin the ageing process in our temperature controlled barrel room.
ABV: 13% Total Acidity: 5.1 g/l. Total Sugars: 2.9 g/l.
Aged in our cellars for 5 years, with a minimum of 12 months spent in our French, American and Hungarian oak barriques.
Will improve with age over the next 3-5 years.
Dominio de Artiga Reserva’s ripe berry flavours are coupled with hints of smooth vanilla and rich cocoa, imparted by the French, American and Hungarian oak barrels in which the wine has matured. Dominio de Artiga is splendid with roast pork, venison and wild boar and glorious with cured meats and mature cheeses.
“Our Dominio de Artiga Reserva is ready to be enjoyed now and will soften with age over next few years. I serve it at room temperature (around 18°C) with fine food and good friends”
