ABADIA MANTRUS

Cosecha 2012

13.5% Vol

Region:  Ribera del Duero

Variety: Tinta Fina del Pais

Notes: A young wine that does not for me represent true Ribera del Duero style. Quite light in weight and though has good colour and aroma of deep mix berry, the flavour on the palate just doesn’t measure up, overly spiced, quite fresh but lacking smoothness and any fine tannins. Just does not sit well in the mouth, after-taste slightly dry and even a slight watery finish to it. Have a bottle of the Roble 2011 to try as well see if a bit of oaking and different vintage adds any new dimensions to it.

Notas: Un vino joven que para mí no representa el verdadero estilo Ribera del Duero. Bastante ligero y, aunque tiene buen color y aroma profundo de bayas, el sabor en el paladar no está a la altura, excesivamente especiado, bastante fresco pero carece de suavidad y de taninos finos. Hay algo que no sienta bien en la boca, el regusto ligeramente seco e incluso un ligero acabado aguado. Tengo una botella del Roble 2011 para probar y ver si un poco de tiempo en barrica y diferente añada le da nuevas dimensiones.
