Details for Altún Reserva 2013
Bottle size and vintage
A selection of the best Tempranillo grapes, made in the traditional way, with the grapes de-stemmed, temperature controlled, ensuing maceration for 15 days in tank and ageing in French and American oak barrels for 18 months, with the remaining time in bottle.
A Picota cherry colour with garnet on the rim, the nose is expressive and exhibits considerable intensity, with toasty, spicy (tobacco and black pepper) and oaky notes. On the palate it comes over as full, powerful and elegant, with ripe tannins and notes of very well integrated fine wood. The finish is long with plenty of structure. A complex wine.
Aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels. Subsequent ageing for a further 18 months in bottle.
