SKU 08693


Made from selected grapes (Tempranillo) grown on very old vines, over 70 years’ old, planted in soils consisting of 50 cms of stone on top of a chalky-clay subsoil.

TASTING NOTES: Appearance: Ruby-red colour with dark garnet glints. Nose: Delicate toasted, spicy fragrance, with hints of liquorice, red fruit and wild berries, and balsamic and mineral nuances coming through. These all mingle together in a perfect point of ripeness which confer great complexity on the wine. Mouth: Delicate, subtle and elegant in its attack, full and supple on the palate, with polished tannins, body and smooth creaminess. It passes smoothly through the mouth and is packed with sensations and a very long, persistent finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Museum Reserva is pure Tempranillo aged for two years in French oak barrels, and as such it has a smoky character with plenty of notes of vanilla and sweet cinnamon with plums, blackberries and dark cherries lurking in the background. The palate is medium-bodied, with very good balance, polished tannins and good acidity, with enough stuffing to develop and last in bottle. Very good, if slightly predictable. Drink now-2018.
