Aier, Rejadorada

REJA010
Firstly, the label is a real gem - love the mosaique style hinting at the ceramic pot ageing ( we call them Amphoras..or is that Amphorai? ) Anyway, this fresh, redcurrant and raspberry scented red shows the freshness that comes from fermenting and ageing the red in clay pots - a deeply rich, fresh, complex red that just grows and grows like the Beanstalk, but without the dodgy giant at the end of the stalk. Imagine Chateauneuf with a dollop of claret and a glass of Beaujolais. Perfecto!

Bodega Rejadorada

Bodega Rejadorada was officially formed in 1999 with one objective: to extract the maximum personality from the Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) varietal. In 2003 a new cellar was built in San Roman de Hornija in the province of Valladolid equipped with the newest technology for the elaboration, aging and bottling of wine. The wines from this terroir are the result of a long-standing tradition; these vines are ungrafted and phylloxera-free and have been growing on the banks of the River Duero since the Roman times.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant and intense violet colour. Deep and intense aroma of black fruity mineral notes combined with spices typical of this variety. Full bodied and silky palate with an intense aftertaste with mineral notes coming through.

Food Matches

Perfect pairing for most kind of meats and fish.

Vinification

Double selected manually harvest of a single vineyard (Finca el Sol - 1978). Fermentation at low temperature to preserve the varietal aromas and aging for 13 months in small ceramic tanks (400 L.), respecting and intensifying the minerality that the vineyard itself provides.
