Producer Note
Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel is an award-winning boutique winery specialising in
wines produced from Tempranillo. Established in 2000, it is located in Peñafiel in the
heart of the DO Ribera del Duero. They source their grapes from 80 hectares vines -
among them some of the finest vineyards in Ribera – which deliver a diversity of
terroirs, enabling them to achieve remarkable complexity in their wines. Since its
inception, Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel has adopted the philosophy of making fine
wines of the highest quality, combining state-of-the-art winemaking with traditional
methods in the vineyards to craft modern, complex and balanced wines.


Vintage
As often happens in Ribera de Duero, the winter was cold and challenging for the
vines, reaching temperatures of -12°C. In spring, abundant rains enriched the soils
water reserves. In June, warmer weather was recorded providing ideal conditions for
fruit-set and lower temperatures in July enabled the vines to continue with rapid
development. High temperatures in September and October enabled the vines to
reach maturity. 2018 was characterised by great freshness, good acidity and
balanced tannins, with great fruit concentration in the vibrant coloured wines.


Vineyard
The grapes come from carefully selected vineyards, from vines with an average age
of 15 years. The vines are carefully cultivated throughout the year, with patience,
specialised craftsmanship and manual work. Emphasis is placed on keeping the
vine healthy, with winter pruning, bunch thinning, and shoot thinning all taking place
to capture the personality of the terroir. The grapes are hand-harvested. They follow
a philosophy of keeping yields low and strive to keep the soils healthy, which allows
the production of a sharp, modern fruit-forward expression of the Tempranillo grape.


Winemaking
Vinification takes place purely by gravity, without the use of pumps and a philosophy
of minimal intervention is followed to respect the characteristics of the fruit and its
provenance. Fermentation took place at carefully controlled temperatures of no
more than 26°C to allow it to take place gradually and evenly. Fermentation was
followed by two weeks’ extended maceration which imparted an interesting and
original balance to the wine. The wine was matured in a combination of French and
American oak barrels for five months.


Tasting Note
Expressive aromas of red fruits, sweet cherry and hints of liquorice are enhanced by
harmonious oaky undertones. A modern wine with a smooth texture and a good
weight, the ripe fruits are carried across the palate with delicious hints of spice
through to a long finish.
