Ramon Bilbao Rioja Mirto 2005

Ramon Bilbao Rioja Mirto 750ml 2005     
Sku: 20334

Tasting notes
Bright and very opaque pomegranate colour with purple hues. Its wide aroma palette drives us from the black berrties, across the smoked wood and toasted bread to the nutmeg. In the mouth its soft and elegante texture yet blunt and powerful. The wine develops in multiple layers tthat show the effort of integration between the Tempranillo fruit and the subtleness of the oak ageing. It remains in the palate leaving a fresh and juicy imprint that brings back the fruits from the first taste.

The 2005 Mirto de Ramon Bilbao is the bodega’s nod to the newer international style. The grapes are all from 70+-year-old vineyards, most of them estate owned. Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel with batonnage followed by 24 months in new Allier oak. The wine was then bottled without fining or filtration. Opaque purple-colored, it offers superb aromatics including aromas of wood smoke, toast, creosote, spice box, leather, and assorted black fruits. Smooth textured, elegant, yet powerful, this layered effort will evolve for 4-6 years and drink well through 2025. ”

Wine maker notes
A careful selection of old vines aged 70+, from areas on the outer limits of the grape-growing area (Haro, Ollauri, Gimileo, Cihuri, Villalba and Cuzcurrita), harvested from the first week in October onwards.

Food pairing
Ideal serving temperature between 18 - 19 °C (64,4 -66,2 °F).A marvellous companion to vegetable and smoked flavours, such as those of wild mushrooms and truffles. Combines nicely with subtly spiced dishes and unsmoked, medium-cured soft cheeses.
