CÁMBRICO TEMPRANILLO 2009
In the Natural Park of the Sierra de Francia, south of the province of Salamanca, is cultivated since time inmemorial Tempranillo, known in the region as “Aragon”.
Viñas del Cámbrico has recovered a 100 year old vineyard located in the granitic terraces of “El Pocito”, 800 m altitude, in order to produce a tiny amount of this particular tempranillo, complex, spicy, expressive, elegant and silky.
The vineyards are terraced with a planting density of 1.4m x 1.4m.
Due to the age of the vines the yield per plant is just 500 g.
Manually sorted and harvested into 10 kg picking crates.
Destemmed and rigorously sorted on the sorting tables.
Fermentation with native yeast ferment.
Manual punching down and mixing via gravity
Malolactic and aging in French oak barrels of 300 and 500 liters for 26 months.
In 2009 the summer was hot but the last weeks of August had very fresh nights so that the grapes kept a good acidity. The result is a very aromatic wine, slightly structured, with aromas of mature and also red fruits, very mineral and complex.
