Seleccion, Ribera del Duero, Reserva
18 months in new French oak barrels and 18 months in bottle
Intense ruby red colour, with a hint of slight garnet on the rim that testify to its aging. It is a frank wine, complex, open and with very high aromatic intensity. A range of ripe black fruits, as plums, blackberries and cherries. Touches of rosemary and thyme flower. Its bouquet is completed by a balsamic intensity, vanilla and black cocoa. Toasty French oak. Concentrated and full-bodied, its character is reflected in its velvety and dense yet restrained tannin providing excellent structure. Sufficient acidity will help ensure a long life and evolution. The wine is an ideal pairing for meat dishes like red meat, roast lamb, roast beef, as well as cured cheeses and foie gras.

The province of Burgos lies within the Castilla y Leon region and it is here, at an altitude of about 830 metres, that the village of Gumiel de Mercado gives rise to the highly-regarded wines of Bodegas Arrocal. This ancient medieval village is a privileged place within the D.O. Ribera del Duero boasting a long and proud winemaking tradition. At its centre, there is a hill under which the ancestors of the current owners of Arrocal, Rosa Arroyo and Moises Calvo (hence together – Arrocal!), painstakingly excavated impressive underground cellars in order to elaborate and preserve their treasured wines. Today, with the help of their two sons Rodrigo and Asier, the family continues to make handcrafted
Ribera wines from the Tempranillo grape locally called Tinta Fina. Their sustainably tended 50 hectares of vineyards are the cradle of a range of wines that captures perfectly the individual style and pedigree of high-quality Ribera del Duero wines. Their new winery was completed in 2003, brilliantly equipped with the latest technical advances, thus ensuring that the harvest is handled with the utmost care. This is home to 600 oak barrels, the majority of which are French.
From a medium-bodied Joven right through to full-bodied Reserva wines, the distinctive Arrocal freshness is the ever present and telling signature.
