Red Wine ᐧ Spain
Loess Inspiration Blue Capsule
Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo
Taking its name from a type of sedimentary soil, the first LOESS wines were made during the 2003 harvest, all from his own vineyards. Not satisfied with producing Ribera Del Duero only, he began the search for vineyards in neighbouring Rueda. Bored of the standard mass market Rueda being produced over the last decade following its massive leap to fame, Jaime wanted to produce the best Rueda possible, making the most of incredible century old vines. With the help of winemaker Issac Fernandez, LOESS looks set to push the benchmark levels even higher as they continue to look for perfection in two of Spain's most exciting wine regions.
Tasting Note: Visually it is clear and bright with a medium depth of colour in which ruby and red tones predominate. On the nose, it shows intense, open fruity aromas accompanied by vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon and coffee tones. The palate is fresh and aromatic wine with woody tannins which lend it structure and sweetness.
