2014 BODEGAS ORDONEZ AVANTE RIBERA DEL DUERO

$28.00 $28.00

Tempranillo is Spain’s most sought after grape varietal, and one of the absolute best places to grow it is Pedrosa del Duero. This region is near the center of Ribera del Duero on the Northern bank of the Duero River. Some of the region’s highest-scoring producers like Bodegas Rodero and Pago de Los Capellanes call it home. Bodegas Ordonez sources the grapes for Avante from 60-year-old vines in Pedrosa. As Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate alerts readers, it’s “an excellent bargain for a high-end Ribero del Duero.”

Avante descends from Gobelet trained vines planted in 1960 that yield just 1.1 tons per acre of powerfully concentrated fruit. Gobelet (goblet) is named after the shape of the vine, which consists of a large trunk that’s topped low to the ground, and crowned by “spurs” which are short arms of permanent branches. In the US, it’s referred to as head trained.

Bodegas Ordoñez sources the fruit from a single vineyard called Pago La Nava. This vineyard consists of the original clone of Tempranillo that’s indigenous to Ribera del Duero and known as Tinto Fino. The wine is powerful, yet intertwined with elegance and old vine complexity. At $28, don’t miss it.

Description

2014 BODEGAS ORDONEZ AVANTE RIBERA DEL DUERO

 “From a vineyard planted in 1960, the 2014 Avante is 100% Tinto Fino that spent 22 months in Burgundy barrels. This deep ruby/plum-colored effort offers loads of black cherry and currant fruits, hints of chocolate and scorched earth, full body, ripe tannin, and good acidity. It’s a fleshy, sexy red that’s going to keep for at least 7-8 years.”

“… An attractive nose of licorice, incense, vanilla, blackcurrants and black cherry jump from the glass of this opaque purple wine. Deep, rich, full-bodied and impressively endowed, this wine should drink well for 7-8 years and is an excellent bargain for a high-end Ribero del Duero.”
