2017 Mauro Vendimia Seleccionada (VS)
At the helm of Bodegas Mauro is Mariano Garcia, an oenologist of the Spanish top estate Vega Sicilia in a former life and therefore certainly not just the first winemaker. The Mauro VS (Vendimia Seleccionada) is a 100% Tempranillo wine that takes a giant step higher in richness compared to the Mauro cuvee. It also shows the remarkable freshness that characterizes Garcia, due to the considerable temperature variation between day and night. It exhibits an aroma of black fruit jam in a sumptuous, liqueur-like setting. He will evolve easily for another 6-8 years and will still be in good shape by his 20th birthday. The Mauro VS is actually the Reserva version but Mariano does not use this terminology.
Mauro VS comes from two unique plots, located in Tudela de Duero and Traspinedo. Organic farming is used with very low yields. The vineyards are over 80 years old. The Mauro VS is only produced in the top years. After fermentation, the wine is aged for an average of 36 months in French and American oak barrels.
