Badiola Tempranillo de Laderas

19.00

‘Laderas’ means hillside and this wine takes its name from the hillside vineyards on which the grapes are grown. The fruit is carefully selected from over 300 parcels that are situated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria, in Rioja Alavesa. The average plot size is just 0.3 hectares and the average age of the vineyard is approximately 50 years, but some of the vines are significantly older, producing low yields of concentrated juice. The Gobelet trained vines are planted in limestone soils, resulting in elegant wines that are fresh, precise and age worthy due to the balancing acidity. The vines cultivated with respect for the environment, using minimal sprays of copper and sulphur when required. The fruit is hand-harvested in 15 kilogram boxes to preserve the quality. Badiola Tempranillo de Laderas Rioja shows excellent balance between fresh natural acidity, fruit concentration and firm, but fine-grained tannins. Pure and precise aromas of cherries and red berries are layered with herbal notes of thyme through to a textured palate.
