This is superb value and a faithful representation of Tempranillo. “The 2014 Ercavio Roble is pure Tempranillo that followed a classical vinification, fermentation in stainless steel, malolactic fermentation in cement and a short aging (six months) in used French barriques. The nose is very classic, too, nicely crafted, fine with a nice combination between berry and spice with subtle oak. It has a commercial profile in a very pleasant way. The palate shows very good volume and a fine texture with elegant tannins.” ERCAVIO Tempranillo Rosado 2015 || 89 points It incites you to keep drinking. This is one to buy by the truck. Great value, again. “The very pale Rosé 2015 Ercavio Rosado is produced with Tempranillo grapes that were cold fermented for one month and bottled in January, until which time it was kept in contact with the lees. The nose is closer to a white than a red (or even a Rosé!), and feels almost like a blanc de noirs with some very subtle strawberry aromas and a little more structure on the palate.” ERCAVIO Airen 2015 || 88 points If this is not the best Airén around, it's clearly among the best. Incredible value. “Produced from one of the driest vintages in history, the white 2015 Ercavio Blanco is pure Airén from old vines cold-fermented and kept in contact with the lees until bottling. It's in this kind of vintage when the local varieties, usually old vines, show their adaptation to these harsh conditions. The nose is clean and fresh, with notes of white flowers and fruit, subtle, not exuberant, balanced with a palate that shows those same characteristics. It is still very young and fruit-driven. As I saw last time, these whites are able to keep in bottle for a while.” LA PLAZUELA 2011 || 94 points Widely considered the best red from La Mancha. LA GARNACHA DE LA MADRE 2014 || 93 points The sensation is super fresh. This is a real surprise...a great surprise. LA MALVAR 2015 || 90 points Good volume with balance and clean flavors, developing some complexity and a very tasty finish.
