RIBERA DEL DUERO

Situated in northern central Spain, the Ribera region now challenges the supremacy of Rioja as the leading red wine producing area. It was not until 1982 that DO status was awarded and many private wineries have since been established.

TASTING NOTES

Another cracker was the Aster, Finca El Otero 2014 from Burgos, the central chunk of Ribera where most of the best wines comes from. This big wine (14.5% above but well-balanced) was notably complex with well-meshed tannins and a long finish. Clearly, it will age well.

TASTING NOTES

The nose opens with warm earthy tones. Appealing spice sits alongside dried peel notes and hightoned fruit over a hint of leather The fruit is forward, and a touch juicier than in the past, underpinned by the same spicy notes found on the nose. A keen freshness knits everything together and the balance of this wine is impeccable. Drink from...
