Finca Constanca Altozano Tempranillo 2019
DOZEN: $176.04 or $14.67 each
Acquired by González Byass in 2001, it was chosen, after an exhaustive search, for its variety of different soil types and the continental climate and low rainfall during the ripening process, which in turn ensures healthy grapes. They practice precision viticulture throughout the vineyard to ensure they achieve the highest levels of quality.
Under the guidance of winemaker Beatriz Paniagua, as always, the selection process begins in the vineyard. Prior to alcoholic fermentation they are cold macerated, at 5oC, in contact with their skins so as to retain the fruit aromas and produce a bright, intense colour.
Explosion of aromas of ripe red fruits and hints of liquorice underpin the character and personality of this 100% Tempranillo. At the same time, notes of toffee and vanilla from ageing in barrel stand out. Soft and pleasant palate with exquisite well integrated tannins and a balance of preverves and ripe jammy fruits. How much? Wow!
