Bodegas-Peñafiel Mironia Reserva
A relative newcomer to the burgeoning northern Spanish wine scene, Bodegas Penafiel is based in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The estate combines the best of the old, with over 200 acres of historic vineyards, and the new, with state-of-the-art winemaking facilities. Established in 2003, it has rapidly become synonymous with authentic, sustainable, quality-driven wines.
Mironia Reserva is a largely comprised of tempranillo (tinta fino) with a small addition of merlot. The grapes are grown at altitude on south-facing slopes across Ribera del Duero, picked by hand at night and transported in small batches to preserve the outstanding fruit. Following a soft destemming and a one day cold soak, the pressings undergo a 15 day temperature-controlled fermentation and a 30-day malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged in 225L French oak barriques for 18 months, with another 12 months of aging in bottle prior to release. The resulting wine is an elegant, powerful and classic Ribera.
Deep cherry red color with a light golden rim outlines the glass. In the nose shows dark ripe wild fruits aromas with spicy and balsamic hints. In the mouth is fleshy and lingering, with the elegance and power typical from our Ribera del Duero.
