2013 Hacienda Monasterio Crianza Ribera del Duero
Today Hacienda Monasterio's vines - Tempranillo cuttings that originally came from Vega Sicilia - are 26 years old, and in their prime. This crianza wine is made up of 80% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from really low yields - 30 hectoliters per hectare, and raised in only 30% new wood. The Wine Advocate says "2013 was a shorter vintage and they didn't do a Reserva or Reserva Especial that year, so the very best grapes from their estate vineyards went into this Crianza." Deep black cherry, blood orange, cassis and spicy pomegranate notes abound in this terrific red!
Hacienda Monasterio is the creation of Peter Sisseck, the man responsible for Pingus, one of the greatest wines of Spain. Back in 1990, he and his uncle Peter Vinding-Diers, a successful Bordeaux proprietor, found a 60 hectare parcel of old vines on the limestone slopes of Ribera del Duero. Realizing that the vines were in poor shape and needed to be replanted, Sisseck decided to sell the property to Spanish investors, and stay on as winemaker and general manager. In 1995 Sisseck launched Pingus, but today he remains as Hacienda Monasterio's consulting winemaker.
Today those vines - Tempranillo cuttings that originally came from Vega Sicilia - are 25 years old, and in their prime. This crianza wine is made up of 80% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 10% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from really low yields - 30 hectoliters per hectare, and raised in only 30% new wood.About Hacienda Monestario
