2017 Ercavio Tempranillo Viñas de Meseta

BLEND | 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo)

VINEYARDS | Cencibel, the local clone of Tempranillo, is uniquely suited to the harsh climate of the area with a smaller, more compact bunch size and thicker skin to withstand heavy winds. Bush & trellised vines (average of 50 years old) on limestone & clay soils at 750-800 meters.

WINEMAKING | Fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by malolactic in cement amphora (tinajas). Aging for 5-8 months in French and American oak barrels.

PRESS | 91 WA
“I'm glad to see the old Ercavio Roble renamed as the 2017 Ercavio Tempranillo Viñas de Meseta, as the wine is more about the grapes and place than the short aging in oak. I also found it unusually subtle and elegant, floral and spicy, with complex aromas and a velvety palate with some spiciness, very fine tannins and great balance. It's super drinkable, and I think in 2017 it overdelivers big time. Amazing bargain!” - Luis Gutierrez
