Luna Beberide 1998 Reserva Estate Wine

Luna Beberide Grandes Pagos de España

In a wood case

Produced, under the direction of their oenologist Mariano García, from equal parts of Merlot, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon which were harvested from 18 to 31 October under cloudless skies with temperatures (24 deg.C) above the normal for the time of year. 70,000 kg were collected and transported to the bodega in 20 kg plastic boxes where the best were selected to produce 23,500 bottles. The average characteristics of the must of the three varieties were - density 1099, Baumé 13 deg. and total acidity 5.2. After a controlled fermentation at 30 deg.C., the wine was transferred to 225 litres French oak casks on 4 March 1999 where it stayed until 4 April 2000 when it was bottled. 13% Vol.
Black cherry with purple tones, sensational nose of mulberry, ripe fruits, herbal, flowers, balsamic, minerals, wax and noble woods, with mind-blowing intensity of fruit on palate with aromatic and mineral notes, gloriously velvety, very powerful structure with great depth and broadness, a wonderfully long and lingering finish of great finesse.

Selected second best Spanish Red with Crianza of 700 wines submitted and blind tasted by 600 sommeliers from around Spain in the X Sommelier Tastings, Nariz de Oro 2001
