Cuesta de las Liebres 2018 con Estuche
Delicioso de principio a fin, Cuesta de las Liebres es un vino que solo se produce en las mejores añadas de la casa. Un vino que constituye una categoría en sí mismo y que destaca por su elegancia y su final largo y redondo. Al igual que El Anejón, este vino se presenta con estuche.
Viñedo y elaboración
Opinión de los críticos
Aromas of ripe, cocoa-dusted blue fruit, sweet spices and wet stones. Medium-to full- bodied, dense and structured with chewy tannins and a deep core of ripe dark fruit on the palate. Lingering, flavorful finish with hints of chocolate and crushed stones. Drink or hold.
The single-vineyard 2018 Cuesta de Las Liebres comes from a plot that was planted in 1992 behind the winery at some 850 meters in altitude, where the soils have more limestone and the vines are head pruned. This has been made with 100% Tempranillo since 2014 (even though they have other varieties there), and they abandoned the 200% new oak regime for the élevage and now do 24 months in new barrels with lower toast, racked after 12 months. It has 15% alcohol and comes through as powerful and ripe. It's full-bodied and has fine tannins and less oaky notes than in the past, with balance and freshness combined with the power and concentration. This is a powerful and classical wine that is not produced every year and is designed for the long haul. 10,000 bottles produced.
