Ribera del Duero.
A red wine with
light barrel ageing.
PRADOREY ROBLE IS NOW PRADOREY ORIGEN
PRADOREY ROBLE IS BORN
We revolutionised the Ribera del Duero when we launched the first Roble wine on the market, a fresher alternative to the region’s traditional Crianzas. We got an oaky wine that was lighter and easier to drink yet retained a certain amount of complexity.
CHANGE OF FOCUS ON THE TERROIR
We start to work each plot individually, respecting the native traits of each grape, each vine, each variety, each plot, each terroir and, therefore, all of our vineyard. In addition, we brought the barrel aging time of our Pradorey Roble down to 3 months.
We got a fresher, more fruit-forward wine, which is revealed in all its bareness to show us that simplicity and naturalness can be synonymous with authenticity and elegance.
RETURN TO THE ORIGINS
We started experimenting with traditional vinifications in centuries-old earthenware jars and we took away another month of aging in barrels from our old Pradorey Roble to let it spend an additional month in our hall of century-old earthenware jars.
The result is a wine that retains its freshness with a mineral, earthy facet that takes us back to the origins of traditional vinifications.
