Gil Family Estates Tridente Tempranillo 2018
$39.90 inc. GST
91/100 – James Suckling (2015 vintage)
Tasting Note: Aged 15 months in French oak. Planted on dry, sandy soils near the Duero River in the south of the province of Zamora, Spain, these old Tempranillo vines survive in thin, eroded soils. This produces very small berries that are full of concentrated flavours of ripe red fruit and delicate spice with dark chocolate flavours lingering on the long finish. Based on mythology, when animals and humans merge in perfect symbiosis the result is a stunning image. Likewise when vineyards and land blend perfectly they produce grapes of great personality that transform into well-balanced and powerfully elegant wines.
Region: Castilla y León, Spain
