Pepe Yllera, Tradition in a Bottle (Red Wine) 1016
The Yllera family crafted this wine in memory of Pepe Yllera one of the founders. Made from Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in vineyards that are 30 to 40 years old. All grapes are hand-harvested, with a double selection, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. D.O. Ribera Del Duero, aged 6 months in American and French oak barrels. Made in Castilla y Leon, Spain by Grupo Yllera.
Pepe Yllera has a brilliant cherry red colour with intense blue-purple glints. Powerful on the nose with a great variety of red and forest fruit aromas (vanilla, Liquorice) and balsamic (eucalyptus) given by the great wood. Liquorice, cedar, and smoke aromas, typical of Cabernet Savignon Variety. It is soft in the mouth, with a silky, sweet and nice acidity which makes it very fresh, with a long finish and an aftertaste reminiscent of berries and vanilla.
Perfect with any kind of meat, especially with Iberian Hams and sausages, white and red meat, roast lamb, game, cured cheeses and semi-soft cheese.
