#tempranillo

This joyful discovery is from the Sierra de Malaga region near Ronda, an ancient Spanish town north of Gibraltar and west of Malaga. This had long been a successful wine-growing region since the great Roman Scipio Africanus drove off Hasdrubal Barca and the Carthaginians during the 2nd Punic War. Unfortunately, as is too often the story, the vines of this region succumbed to phylloxera and were quickly driven into obscurity.

In the 1980s, Sierra de Malaga began it’s resuscitation when vinegrowers re-discovered that it’s warm climate and diurnal range suited it to the full-bodied, intense red wines that we see today. The 18-year old German Friedrich Schatz came to Ronda in 1982 and found success with the red grapes of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. His bodega F. Schatz continues his legacy today, with other neighbours expanding the region’s quality production.

From the Ramos-Paul winery: “In 1999, the marriage of Paul Ramos Ruano Nane and Pilar Martínez-Laffitte Mejias set the stage to pursue this project and build this winery located between the Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves mountain ranges, just below Old and Roman Ronda known as Acinipo, which means "land of vineyards."The natural paradise that protects this winery keeps its secret of an ideal microclimate in a remote place with a reminiscences of old Andalusia, where it seems that time has stopped and echoes of old bandits can be heard in the wind.” - http://www.ramos-paul.com/en

This 2005 is a brooding giant, ripe with figs, charred oak, burnt sugar and rich baked black fruit. Some age shows in the rich umami and soya sauce notes developing, but the carious tannic teeth show it’s longevity ahead. A brilliantly structured wine, with pronounced aromatics and barely reigned-in ripeness at 14.5%. An outstanding value for $62 CAD at Firefly. Put this away or drink it now with charred ribeye.

Rojo picota con ribete agranatado y algún reflejo rubi, limpio, brillante, capa media, lágrima densa, gruesa y transparente. En nariz intensidad media, fruta roja madura, regaliz, cacao, notas de madera y tostados. En boca buena entrada, paso suave, buen cuerpo, muy frutal, tostados, especias, muy buena acidez y taninos suaves, final medio. Un rioja diferente, personalmente me ha gustado y la RCP me parece razonable! #tempranillo #garnacha #graciano #dorioja #bodegasexeo #creacionesexeo #catandovinos #vivaelvino #winelover
