Details for Trus Roble 2018
Bottle size and vintage
The Trus Roble is a wine of exhilarating fruit. All the hard work and effort put in by its oenologist, Rafael García, are aimed at preserving the basic primary emotions of an excellent fruit collected from vines growing in clay loam soil with a low content of limestone.
Although it is made using the youngest vines the winery have, the Trus Roble benefits from the fact that they are north-facing and the cooler weather adds to the usual character of continental climate vines growing at altitudes. The amount of fruit on each plant is also controlled to ensure each grape contains the maximum concentration of flavour. A short and careful maceration process of only ten days produces a wine with a young character; a wine with body but agile on the palate, a juicy wine without excessive tannins and with its own personality.
Trus Roble has a deep and bright cherry colour, and a nose of mandarin peel and violet petals which define its elegance, light complexity and natural balance. Its aromas remind us of the great Montsant wines but its smoothness and extremely tender mouth express its Tempranillo grapes and the essence of Ribera del Duero. An airy wine with diffused tannins, each sip is delightfully pleasant and surprising. Its four months in wood merely adds hints of spices, such as vanilla, and discrete smoke to the round, fresh, and juicy fruit which is the true star of the wine. A very moreish wine, it is also virtually impossible to give up smelling and enjoying its aromas.
Served at a moderate temperature to bolster its flowery and ethereal character, it’s an ideal wine to accompany mild-flavoured dishes.

Otra visión de Ribera del Duero
Este vino hay que catarlo a ciegas porque, si no, uno se entretiene más en preguntarse si la etiqueta está equivocada que en disfrutarlo. Tiene unos aromas tan particulares que parece que contenga garnacha en su cupaje. ¿Será el viñedo y sus alrededores? Ágil, aromático y muy sabroso. Un descubrimiento.
