Alonso del Yerro - Ribera Del Duero 2017

IN STOCK

The most emblematic wine from Alonso del Yerro. The character and complexity of Tempranillo, with the freshness and concentration typical of the vintage. Made from a selection of Tempranillo variety grapes in the privileged vineyards of the Santa Marta estate, with a great diversity of soils. Alonso del Yerro is a very aromatic, sweet, fresh and balanced wine. Aged for about 12 months in French oak barrels (10% new).

"Alonso del Yerro was established in 2002 by former pharmacists María and Javier Alonso del Yerro. The winery sits on the outskirts of Roa and focuses on producing Tempranillo at two price points from 26 hectares of vineyard across various plots with clay and limestone soils. Their style embodies modern Ribera, with restrained extraction and plenty of ripe fruit. They also own a winery in Toro, and Miguel Alonso del Yerro oversees winemaking at both locations. This winery is part of the prestigious Grandes Pagos de España group." - Joaquin Hidalgo, Vinous

"The ripe and juicy 2017 Alonso del Yerro was cropped from a challenging and warm vintage, a selection of Tempranillo grapes from their vineyards in the Roa zone of Ribera del Duero that are farmed organically and biodynamically even if the wines are not certified. It's ripe without excess, jammier than the 2016 María I tasted next to it, with a round and full-bodied palate with glossy tannins. A triumph over the adverse conditions, I'd say... It was bottled in July 2019." - 93 point, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
