Tempranillo Merlot Malbec Ribera Del Duero Spain
Bodegas Vega Sicilia came into prominence after significant prize wins at the 1929 Barcelona World Fair. Today, the wines of Vega Sicilia are feted by the international industry press for their complexity, intensity and longevity, amongst the finest in the world.
Vega Sicilia continue to deliver wines that are concentrated and extravagantly matured, elegant and long lived . All vines are dry grown and hand pruned, yielding less than two kilos each. Grapes are never picked unless they have achieved high levels of sugar concentration. The optimum ripeness of fruit captured during harvest and high alcohol content facilitates the extraction of colour and tannins. A cepage of varying proportions, according to vintage, Tempranillo and Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Vega Sicilia Valbuena is treated to maturation in a selection of new and seasoned, French and American oak casks and larger format oak vats for up to three years, followed by two in the bottle before release.
Dark, garnet cherry red with deeper robes. Opulent nose with a range of wild red fruit essences, raspberries and morello, supported by the presence of vanilla barrel age notes. Rich palate with profound grape tannin structure, wild fruits and savoury notes over a persistence of licorice, blueberries and cassis. A leafy finish culminates on a licorice spice complexity, a powerful yet graceful wine to serve alongside saddle of hare under balsamic reduction, meat jus and chorizo.
