3 Ases Tempranillo (Episode 158)

In this episode, we taste an excellent Tempranillo called 3 Ases which is available from John’s shop Czwericks.

It has a fantastic blackcurrant aroma which is really powerful and great to “sniff at”!

Blackcurrant and a hint of vanilla on the palate with a great length. It is a great wine with a good deal of complexity.

We discuss how we think this wine would pair fantastically with Iberico Ham – the wine which costs £22.00 would need to be appreciated to it’s full and savoured over an evening, cheaper than a trip to the cinema and in my book far more enjoyable.

Just to clarify the discussion we had with regards to the length of time different classification mean the wine has been in a barrel and in the bottle her is a guide: –

Crianza:

A wine labelled Crianza has spent one year in oak barrels.

Reserva:

A wine that says Reserva on the bottle has been aged for two years; one of these years has to have been spent in oak.

Gran Reserva:

These wines are aged for two years in oak and three years in the bottle.

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo (Episode 149)

We taste a wine, Condado De Haza made from the Tempranillo grape from the Riber del Duero Region of Spain. Just south of the Rioja region which also uses a lot of Tempranillo in the creation of it’s world famous wines.

There are of course a lot of similarities between this wine and the wines from Rioja, which would make it difficult for the beginner to discern the difference.

It is a great wine and well worth a try, available from Sainsburys at £15.00 per bottle as well as other retailers.

Agustin explains that this wine has yet to meet it’s full potential and will continue to improve over the next 10 years.

Tasting Cillar De Silos from the Ribera del Duero Region (Episode 41 part 7)

We move to the 2nd red of our tasting session from the Ribera del Duero region, this wine, Cillar De Silos, has had 12 months in the oak and at least 2 years in the winery.

The vines from which this wine is made are grown a little lower in altitude than the Biberius which is one of many influences which contributes to it’s different character.
