Dominio de Eguren Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Protocolo Tinto 2017
WINEMAKER - Marcos Eguren
APPELLATION - Vino de la Tierra de Castilla
VARIETIES - Tempranillo
Produced from sustainable trellised vineyards of Tempranillo planted primarily in the limits of DO Manchuela between 600 and 700M above sea level. The viticulture is sustainable - without the use of irrigation, fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. The vines are dry farmed. They are planted on trellises, but are cared for to reduce yields as much as possible with the intent of increasing the concentration of the berries.
Poor calcareous clay soils with a high proportion of limestone. The surface is spotted with pebbles, resulting in good surface drainage.
RATINGS & REVIEWS
87 - Jeb Dunnuck

The grapes undergo a short cold maceration and are pressed and vinified in stainless steel. Fermentation occurs at low temperatures to retain the natural aromatics of the Tempranillo.
The wine spends a year maturing in stainless steel to soften the tannins and add complexity.
