Condado de Oriza Reserva 2015 Tempranillo Red Wine – Ribera del Duero Spain
Aged for 24 months in American and French oak barrels, then rests in the bottle for 12 months. Dark ruby red with subtle orange shades. The nose is a complex bouquet of cherries and dried plums combined with balsamic and spicy savoury notes. These intermingle with mocha, toast, caramel and smoke flavours as well as with a hint of pepper. Its palate is a reflection of its nose with additional notes of herbs and leather. The wine displays powerful, but very well integrated tannins, medium acidity and a long-lasting, velvety finish. A perfect complement to game, grilled beef, lamb chops with aromatic herbs and Castilian stews.

About Ribera del Duero
In the last 30 years, the Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero has emerged to challenge the crown of Spain’s greatest wine region; Rioja. Located in Spain’s northern plateau, this region covers four Castile and León provinces – Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. But, despite what its name may suggest, Ribera del Duero does not cover all of the villages along the River Duero. Ribera del Duero was granted its Denominación de Origen status in 1982 and today it has over 250 wineries and over 22,000 ha of vineyards. Most of Ribera del Duero’s production is red wine and only a moderate amount of rosé is produced.
