PRODUCER: Quinta Milu is a family project in the Ribera del Duero from the Asturian viticulturist Germán R. Blanco. A small project which for nearly 10 years now has looked for wines which tell us about where they were born, a small village by the name of La Aguilera situated in the province of Burgos. German makes his elegant, fruit-forward wines using foot-treading, wild yeast fermentation and minimal handling. All his wines share a delicious rusticity, purity of fruit, and incredible freshness.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are hand harvested with strict site selection, completely destemmed and must is fermented in 90% stainless steel and 10% open top oak barriques with minimal racking and punching down. Wine ages for a further 6 months in 400 and 500-litre old French and American oak barriques before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with minimal additions of sulphur.
TASTING NOTE: Aromas of ripe dark fruits, black cardamom, liquorice and peppery spices. Bright and pure, with great acidity and supple tannins.
