Oak aged for 12 months, then 12 month in bottle, this Ribera is a world class wine from Spain's most exciting region
Located in the so-called "Golden Mile", the most prestigious area of Ribera del Duero, Viña Mayor brings together the Ribera del Duero's two great strengths. The first a drive for innovation that fuelled the first steps of the creation of this comparatively youthful D.O. in 1986. The second the deep seated respect the winery has for its surroundings, where it sits in the landscape of hills and slopes that look over the majestic course of the Duero River. Combining these strengths helps form a winery with vision, grounded in the present creating powerful fruit driven wines of style and class.
Tasting Note: A deep ruby red. Intense juicy red fruits on the nose which explode in the mouth then melt into forest fruits, and well integrated tannin. A hint of toasted oak.
