Vega Sicilia Pintia Toro 2015
As is the case of all TEMPOS Vega Sicilia wines, the harvest is by hand with the fruit being placed in 12-kg boxes and grapes, once in the winery, they are left in a cold chamber for 12 hours in order to preserve their fruit intensity.
Along with the selection on the wine, a double sorting is carried out in the winery. This first remove those bunches that may have been wrongly picked in the field and the second focuses on the substandard berries that are found on optimum bunches. Cold maceration is carried out for 5 days prior to fermentation in oak wood vats.
The malolactic fermentation is 100% carried out in wood and the ageing in 70% French and 30% American during 12 months.
These wines are highly intense in colour and depth, cherry red in tone with purplish hues. It is broad, very clean, expressive and elegant on the nose, with a great fruit intensity cocooned in a subtle way and of great quality. It has a great structure and a good tannic presence in the mouth and is persistent, fresh and very pleasant to the palate. Floral hints in retronasal.

Saw this wine in my recently acquired Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book described as a wine to try for 2021.
More expensive than my usual however I opened on NYE and was not disappointed. I thought it was very fruity, bags of flavour and complex. My only reservation would be whether it was entirely worth the fairly hefty price.
But I certainly found it interesting.
