CALLEJO FINCA VADELROBLE 2009

Wine Region: Burgos, Spain

Grape: Tempranillo

Tasting Notes

Lively, deep, dense red colour that tints the glass and the tears running down its sides. Deep, delicate aromas of wild forest flowers and the fresh breezes of the high plains mingle harmoniously with ripe tropical fruit characters. Mineral touches reminiscent of underground limestone rock come through against a backdrop of spicy and smoky notes. Hints of just-picked grapes appear on the palate along with fresh tannins that are yet to become fine and polished. Mouth-filling on the palate with a fine-grained texture; the full ripeness of the grapes shows through, followed by a long, lingering finish.

About the Winery

Situated in the northern part of the Ribera del Duero appellation, in the highest part of the Duero valley, the vineyards lie at 850 to 930 metres above sea level and are contained within a privileged enclave. The high altitude brings about sharp contrasts of temperature between day and night-time, with swings of over 15ºC, which enhance grape ripening during the day while the low night temperatures preserve good acidity.
