Onomástica Tinto

Vino Tinto Reserva Onomástica

Carlos Serres - Onomástica Reserva
  • Varieties

    80% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 10% Mazuelo.

  • Vineyards

    The grapes for this wine come from a selection of just 3 different parcels of the Finca El Estanque vineyard, a 60-hectare vineyard owned by the winery in the best areas of Haro. These particular vines are 35 years old on average, surviving in the best clay-chalk soils that aid the gentle and even ripening of the grapes, resulting in fruit that shows great sugar and acidity balance and phenolic maturity.

  • Vintage

    Hand picked into small cases. 21th (Tempranillo), 28th October (Mazuelo) and 30th October (Graciano).

  • Vinification

    Each variety was fermented in small concrete tanks separately. After destemming and gentle pressing, the juice macerates on the skins before fermenting for approximately 18 days at a maximum temperature of 30º C. The wine is then blended before ageing in barrel.

  • Ageing

    24 months in a combination of American and French oak barrels, then a further 24 months ageing in bottle before release.

  • Tasting Note

    Intense, deep maroon colour. Aromas of black fruit, vanilla and dark chocolate with hints of spices and mineral notes. Generous, full bodied wine with fleshy fruit and along finish.

  • Food Match

    A wonderful match for roast kid and suckling pig, braised meats and aged cheeses, and a surprisingly good match for dark chocolate too.
