Making Techniques Alcoholic fermentation took place in tanks, lasting 16 days. After maceration, the wine was put in new French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation for three months with a weekly 'bâttonage' on lees. We then picked a selection of the best barrels and, after blending them, the wine is moved to new French oak. The wine was aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels, where it was racked twice, employing traditional methods.
Awards and/or Press Quotes
International Wine Challenge 2015 Trophy winner of 'Best Ribera del Duero' and 'Best Spanish Red Wine'
Robert Parker 93 Points ‘The 2010 Aster Finca El Otero is a single-vineyard Tempranillo fermented and aged in oak barrels. It has a flowery, exuberant nose mixing aromas of violets, plums, and blueberries with lactic hints and spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, good acidity and balance. It’s a showy, succulent style of Tempranillo with lactic and chocolate hints, without being exaggerated or overwhelming.’
