2014 Bodega Matarromera, Reserva, Rivera del Duero, Spain

Bouquets of ripe black fruits, with clear mineral notes. In addition, slight cocoa notes accompany the experience of smelling a Matarromera Reserva, with spices and balsamic. The young dark chocolate notes are now evolving into new leather and pipe.



Strains that are over 25 years old and with moderate vegetation, which produce smaller clusters and grapes. Why is that? The concentration of color, polyphenols, and other properties of the grape is higher. In short: less quantity, but higher quality. Less is more! This type of strains is mainly found at higher altitudes.

Calcareous soils located at an altitude of over 750 meters. As previously mentioned, one of the biggest factors to influence wine is the soil in which the vineyard is planted. Limestone is a type of calcareous rock that provides good water drainage and makes for full-bodied wines, suitable for aging.

The grapes come from a 180 hectare vineyard located at 850 meters above sea level. It ferments in stainless steel tanks for 10-14 days at 28ºC. Finally, the wine ages for 18 months in American and French oak barrels.
