El Vínculo Crianza 2019
The El Vínculo Crianza is made from a thicker-skinned variety of Tempranillo indigenous to the La Mancha region, called Cencibel sourced from vineyards with an average age of 50 years. After fermentation, the wine was aged for 23 months in American oak barrels and then 4 months rest in the bottle. Expressive, concentrated aromatics on the nose with ripe fruit such as blackberries and plums coming to the fore against a subtle backdrop of liquorice, one of Tempranillo’s typical characteristics. This is a wine that has body with fine-grained, well-integrated tannins. On entry the palate is fruity and fleshy. The mid-palate is full with good volume, while the finish is long and pleasant with hints of sweet spices and toasted notes such as toffee and cocoa.
