One bottle of Viña Pedrosa Ribera del Duero Reserva is never enough. Luckily, this gift box contains two bottles and the perfect glasses from Riedel to sip them from. The perfect present for a pair of Spanish wine lovers.
Awarded 94 points by the Master of Wine Tim Atkin (see full review below), Viña Pedrosa Ribera del Duero Reserva 2018 is made from pure Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and matured in a combination of American and French oak for two years. It was bottled in 2021 and left to rest for another year before release. The vintage only yielded around 52,000 bottles of this noble and elegant red, and those are disappearing rapidly.
Pouring an intense ruby colour, this Ribera del Duero displays gorgeous aromas of stewed plums, cherries, blueberries, and crème de cassis. On the palate, it’s well-structured and balanced, with more of the same fruit, joined by notes of tobacco, dark chocolate, graphite, smoke and spices. An effortlessly stylish wine to serve alongside Sunday roasts, meaty tapas, wild boar or Middle Eastern grills.
Viña Pedrosa is created by the ever-reliable Pérez Pascuas family. In the 1980s, brothers Benjamín, Manuel and Adolfo decided to create one of Spain’s greatest wines using the old vines that their father, Mauro Pérez, had planted. Their vineyards are at a slightly higher altitude than those of their neighbours, which results in slower ripening, and as a result, immense complexity. Now the third generation are at the helm and the standard of their Ribera del Duero wines has never been higher.
94 points, “This was the last vintage of Viña Pedrosa Reserva that was made by José Manuel Pérez Ovejas before his departure and it’s a fitting tribute to his talents. Produced with Tinto Fino from the El Prado vineyard, it's a structured, well-balanced, age-worthy red that was aged in a combination of French and American oak. Focused, textured, spicy and floral, it’s a wine with time on its side.” – Ribera del Duero 2021 Top 100 by Tim Atkin MW
