    Winemaker Notes

    Cherry red in color with violet streaks and a very dark robe.

    In the nose it is potent with an explosion of fresh red fruit and smoky, mineral overtones. With time, it develops riper fruit aromas in addition to Mediterranean undergrowth, spices and black berries.

    In the mouth it is initially attractive, giving way to well developed tannins, clear acidity and tasty fruitiness. It has hints of black liquorice, with graphite and spices - complex on the whole, which illustrates the personality of the Almansa terroir .

    Almansenas, Spain
    2007 La Huella de Adaras
    Ester Nin Llort started her career in 2004 at Almanseñas in the La Mancha appellation of Almansa. There, together with Pep Aguilar and Patri Morillo, both oenologists from the Priorat, she takes charge of the viticulture and oenology for the estate where three wines are made from Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell.

    The estate Venta La Vega (La Vega Inn) is on the "Royal Way" from Madrid to Valencia & Alicante, where an inn once stood and welcomed travelers’' tales. The vineyard fields are scattered with ancient rainwater troughs, pine trees and oak trees which abruptly meet with the cornfields on the Almansa plateau.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

    In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
