Montelaguna Roble

Violet and youthful red wine with subtle tannins, gooseberries, blackberries, blueberries and a hit of vanilla from the gentle ageing (less than a year) in American oak. A wine with elegance not normally found in Ribera Del Duero. Montelaguna is one of the highest vineyards in Ribero del Duero. Once you climb up the royal road, you will find this 10 hectare site. Jose de las Heras waits until the last moment to harvest; long ripening ensures ripeness and freshness. Hand-harvested in October, fermentation both alcoholic and malolactic in American oak with wild yeast, before an extra six months in oak. Beautiful aromas of violets, blackberries and vanilla. Organic and Biodynamic certified.

Jose de las Heras

A gargantuan 900 metres above sea-level, in the sleepy village of Pesquera de Duero, lie the luscious vines of Montelaguna.  With most vineyards in Ribera del Duero average at 740 metres above sea-level, Montelaguna is a literal cut above the rest. Temperatures at Montelaguna are significantly lower than those throughout the Ribera region meaning the grapes have a longer period to mature and ripen on the vine.

Rekindling an old friendship and combining a shared passion for winemaking are the foundations upon which Montelaguna was built. Jose de las Heras started the vineyard in 2005, inviting his childhood friend and well known Spanish wine consultant Juan Ayuso to join him in creating a collection of fresh, balanced wines.

There are no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers used on the 300 hectare estate. What’s more, the comrades do not use foreign yeasts, bacteria or enzymes of any description during fermentation, preferring to keep the process as natural as possible. Montelaguna Crianza is an elegant offering of 100% Tempranillo, slowly matured on high-altitude wines, aged for 12-months in French oak and a further 12-months in the bottle.

Montelaguna

The singularity of our wines is established from the first moment by the situation of our vineyard nailed to more than 900 meters above sea level, when the average of the Ribera del Duero does not exceed 740 meters
