Review

The new wine produced in Quintanilla de Onésimo by Javier Ausàs — former oenologist at Vega Sicilia and advisor for many other renowned wineries. Twenty-five years work in prestigious international wineries, together with his intimate knowledge of the different areas of the Ribera del Duero, have come together in this new project of his which finds Javier working alongside friends and trusted winegrowers.

Javier Ausàs believes that the winegrowers cultivating each plot have a key role to play in making a top wine, and the relationship winemaker-terroir is an essential feature of the Ausàs Interpretación wine. Each vineyard has its own style, and Javier ensures they complement each other perfectly. The spectrum of possibilities these combinations offer gives the wine its floral character of light soils, fruitiness from clay, freshness from the high altitudes, and the strength of chalky soils.
