Ostatu Gran Reserva 2011

Ostatu Gran Reserva

Vinification Temperature-controlled fermentation occurred in small vats and was followed by malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. Aged a further 24 months with half in 1 to 2 year old 225L barrels, it is then blended back together and aged an additional 5 months in 4,000L foudres.

Tasting Notes Extremely complex and very aromatic with black raspberry, cassis, sandalwood, and violets on the nose. Potpourri and wildflowers. The palate features dark fruit and baking spices with incredible balance; full bodied yet extremely elegant. Showing powerful primary fruit with balanced acidity, this full-bodied wine drinks well now and 20 years in the future. One of the best wines made in 2011.
