Torres ‘Celeste’ Ribero del Duero Crianza 2014

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 07-Mar-2018
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegant and refined with very good depth and intensity of ripe dark-red and black berried fruits, along with raspberry elements, boysenberries and a hint of liquorice. This has a degree of opulence and grows in concentration with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich, vibrant and intense flavours of ripe, dark-red berry fruit with raspberries and liquorice, earth and spice, unveriling plum notes. Soft, complexing earth and dark herb detail adds interest. The fruit has richness and vitality and is supported by plenty of fine, grainy tannin structure with balanced acidity. The flavours have excellent presence and carry with power and drive to a long and sustained, spicy finish. Elegant on bouquet, this is a vibrant and rich, ripe Ribera del Duero with plenty of structure and depth. Match with roasted red meats and semi-hard cheeses over the next 7-8+ years. Tempranillo fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine spending 15-20 days on skins and aged 12 months in new and seasoned French and American oak barrels. 18.5+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $32.99
