Review

The Resalte Vendimia Seleccionada is the freshest and most original wine from the Resalte winery in Peñafiel. A red, delicately smooth wine with traditional aromas. Far from being a simple wine, though, it offers a renewed version of a true classic.

It is always made with grapes from the same plots, choosing the most subtle and fresh ones from the winery's vineyards. This splendid fruit brings silky tannins and floral aromas to the wine as the label itself testifies. At altitudes of 1,000 metres, the highest in the Ribera appellation, the chalky soil and significant temperature differences between day and night on the moorlands of Manzanillo, Fompedraza, and Torre de Peñafiel are to thank for the irresistible aromas of the Vendimia Seleccionada.

The winery uses a gravity-fed process and the must is fermented at low temperatures to achieve the wine's silky feel and extract the essence of primary aromas. Large 500-litre barrels are used to round off the wine while ensuring the wood does not become too noticeable in the final result. Finally, in the glass, we find a light wine, which doesn't cling to the gums but neither does it leave our cheeks unmoved as it covers them with the pleasant and seductive feel of blackberries and ripe red currants. The longer it is in the glass, the more aromas appear — hints of cocoa, cigars, cherries, strawberry coulis, and sarsaparilla. Its complexity is such that every smell brings with it a new aroma. To sum up, it tastes and smells like vineyards. A simply-made wine which allows the soil and its fruit to express themselves, reminding us of the wines our parents and grandparents enjoyed on a daily basis, a reflection of the Ribera of the past before globalization and the huge boom in popularity of its red wines.

Great surprise

Good balance, tannin and finish. Great quality for the price.

by: David Gras (7 Jan) - Vintage 2016

Me ha sabido un vino elegante. De paladar muy fino. Recomendable.

Quizás mejor para beber como aperitivo, para tomar de manera pausada. Un gran vino, de una denominación excelente y a un precio razonable.

Muy bueno

Comprado sin referencias resultó mejor de lo esperado. Lo volveré a comprar y no pienso tardar demasiado en hacer un pedido mayor.

Sorprende su elegancia

Ya era hora de que nos sorprendieran algunos vinos de la Ribera del Duero. Y parece que el buen trabajo llegará de la mano de las bodegas menos afamadas (grandilocuentes algunas). Compararía este Vendimia Seleccionada con una tarde de lectura, disfrutando de cada sorbo, como con cada palabra, pasando páginas lentamente, viviéndolas. Honesto, reflejo de una tierra, tejido por un sastre experto que busca la calidad, el placer y la elegancia más que enseñar una marca. Mi enhorabuena y que siga así.

Mehr als nur faires Preis-Leistungsverhältnis!

Color, Odor, Pumor! Alles stimmig. Ein schöner Wein. Jetzt schon eine Freude, vielleicht jetzt noch etwas jung (2014). Hoffentlich lager- und entwicklungsfähig.
