Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero 2017

Pago de Carraovejas Ribera Del Duero is made from 90% Tempranillo, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot


The Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero vintage marks a turning point in the history of the winery. From now on, the Crianza and Reserva are unified in this wine that focuses on the terroir and character rather than the time of aging. Its renewed label reflects the three key elements of this red: origin, soul and emotion. 


Pago de Carraovejas Ribera Del Duero is made with grapes grown in the Botijas River valley, and planted between 1988 and 2011. Our work over the last 30 years has been geared to handcrafted viniculture, that puts as much care as possible into the microclimate conditions and the details. We have placed particular attention on the maintenance of the soil by plant cover that already grows spontaneously. It allows us to develop the ecosystem of the valley, which we respect scrupulously, using organic fertilizer and sulfur as the sole basis of our viticulture.

Depending on which plot they come from and the time they enter the winery, the grapes may be deposited in cold chambers to prevent oxidation and preserve the aroma. We carry out a two-part selection: first on the vine, where we choose the bunches, and then on a belt in the winery, where we remove the grapes that do meet the necessary conditions. The grapes enter the winery and are transported with the assistance of gravity. The deposits are filled slowly and gently. Depending on the characteristics that we detected when tasting the grapes, we ferment them either in stainless steel deposits or French oak barrels. For years we have worked with our own yeast that has been isolated from the vines by our team. This work is also partly responsible for the Carraovejas character.


The wine was aged in barrels for around twelve months.


Review:

This offers a wealth of ripe dark berries and plums on the nose with good purity. The palate has a very juicy and concentrated feel. The tannins are nicely groomed. This holds good shape and length. Drink or hold. - James Suckling 92 Points

Product Description


"Austerity is the key word here. This wine offers little more than its firm structure for now, holding its flavors at a distance. With enough time in the glass, earthy aromas begin to emerge, lending complexity to the notes of blackberries and strawberries, showing an unexpected side to this exceptional tempranillo."
- Wine & Spirits Magazine (June 2012), 92 pts

Dark cherry red color, clean and bright. Rich ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit dominate the nose, nicely combined with a touch of the oak's elegant, toasty spice.

"Aromas of beeswax candle, vanilla pod and chocolate strawberries with a supple dryish medium-full body and a long, tangy, and meaty nut, straw and herb bread accented finish. A delicious and structured Ribera that will work well with lamb"

"Vivid ruby. Complex, expressive aromas of cherry, bitter chocolate, Indian spices, mocha and sexy oak. Lively and penetrating, with very good clarity and verve to its bitter cherry and dark berry flavors. Finishes spicy and long, with firm, fine-grained tannins adding shape and grip. I suspect that this wine will age slowly, on its balance."

Winery: Ebano

The Ebano Estate
Over the past few years Adegas Valminor (D.O. Rías Baixas) has been putting together a D.O. Ribera del Duero, initiative which began with the acquisition of prime vineyards in the area around Quintana del Pidio and Gumiel del Mercado. After extensive work on the vineyards and the construction of the necessary facilities, the first Ebano (crianza 2001) was produced. In Spanish, the word ébano means ebony, the hard black wood used in making musical instruments such as clarinets. The name evokes the deep dark color of the wine.

The Ebano Vineyards
The holdings amount to a total of 43 hectares (106 acres), separated in 7 different parcels. The vines are 100% Tempranillo. The older plantings (23 years) are pruned in the traditional goblet or head-trained fashion. Later plantings are trained on wires and are some 15 years old. The soils in the area are generally a mix of sand/gravel and clay/limestone.
