Yuntero Reserva 2010, gold medal

Just three months after its release on the market, the Yuntero Reserva red wine from the 2010 vintage has won its first gold medal in the Asia Wine Trophy competition. Its predecessor, the red Reserva from the 2008 vintage, received up to seven medals in various prestigious international competitions.

With La Mancha Designation of Origin, Yuntero Reserva is made 100% with the Tempranillo grape variety. It has a long maceration with fermentation at a temperature of 24-25° C. After this process, it is aged for twelve months in mixed oak barrels (French oak bottoms and American oak staves). Before being marketed, it spends two years in the bottle.

Cherry red in color, with a brick-like color, it has great aromatic complexity, highlighting the spicy and balsamic notes of its aging in barrels, as well as roasted notes of coffee and mocha. In the mouth, it is a very round, smooth and elegant wine, with very sweet tannins, and great persistence.

Yuntero Crianza 2012, gold medal

The Yuntero Crianza red wine, from the 2012 vintage, has also won its first gold medal in Asia, three months after going on sale. With the La Mancha designation of origin, it is made with the Tempranillo (90%) and Petit Verdot (10%) grape varieties. It is aged for six months in American oak barrels and another twelve in the bottle. Cherry red in color with slight aged reflections, the nose is complex, mixing the aromas of the grape variety with those of the oak. In the mouth it is harmonious and tasty, with a full, dry and balanced attack.
