2016 Flor de Silos, Cillar de Silos, Ribera del Duero, Spain

Description

The Flor de Silos is made from one, ancient pre-phylloxera vineyard on the family’s estate around Quintana del Pidio. Only nine barrels were made of this wine this year. With intense bramble fruit on the nose, this has an attractive floral character. The sweet red and black fruit glides through, accompanied by that very Spanish hint of cured meat. The wine is succulent yet incredibly mineral, with lovely freshness and a vibrant finish. This is an extremely impressive Flor. Drink 2020-2030.

About this WINE

Cillar de Silos

Cillar de Silos

If one recalls one’s history, one will remember that it was the marriage of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile that set Spain on its road to unity. This is a somewhat whimsical introduction to Bodegas Cillar de Silos, which is located in the heart of Castille, Ribera del Duero to be precise, but owned and run by the brothers and sister team of Oscár, Roberto and Amelia Aragón.

They also manage the El Quintanal Estate in neighbouring wine region Rueda and are thus perfectly located for both red and white wine making, demonstrating all that is great about, respectively, Verdejo and Tempranillo as grape varieties.

The Aragóns define the House Philosophy with the words ‘purity, fruit, low yields, long ageing and hand selection’. The wines are finely crafted but demonstrably Spanish, which is good news!
