EL BUSCADOR Crianza 2017

Dry Autumn followed by a mild Winter, frozen Spring and fresh Summer.

2017 is a vintage that has only one key; the frost in the “black days” April the 27th and 28th. Nothing else than those days when vineyards were devasted by the Nature exactly when worst could be; just after sprouting.

Despite of our regular harvest of around 250.000 kg of grapes; our vineyards produced only 72.000kg. In this situation and with such a short harvest we had to make some difficult but needed decisions. First of all, we didn’t produce our younger and fresh El Guia wine. Besides that, after having our Nomada aged and ready; we realized that quality was not as good as we consider our Nomada has to be so; we decided to not release to the market that wine in that vintage and blend the wine with Buscador 2017. Due to this difficult but we think honest decision, we really can be proud of our BUSCADOR 2017

TASTING NOTES

90 % Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha from Finca Las Ginebras

Colour  Deep, intense and bright ruby colour

Nose: Lovely black ripe fruit notes perfectly blended with delicate aromas of coffee, black pepper, coconut and liquorice. Wine aged in French barrels which give an “extra” of complexity and elegancy.

Mouth creamy, soft and friendly wine, with some volume and a slightly tannic touch of the French barrels. Fruity and elegant, with good complexity and a balanced acidity that shows a long life.

Amazing wine for a such a difficult vintage like 2017.
