Why do we love it?

Veriquete Tentenublo, is another single vineyard wine in the Escondite del Ardacho series and we'll just let the scores do the talking...93pts from Robert Parker and 93pts from Tim Atkin!

The formidable Roberto Oliván changed the well-known oaked and unraised versions of Rioja when in 2011 he expanded the 30-year-old family business with just 10 hectares of vineyards. This led him in 2015, at just 37 years old, to be named the best winemaker of the year! With the experience of the 4th generation winemaker, through his small winery and Tentenublo Wines, he gave a different expression of Rioja with freshness, complexity and the subtle influence of oak, dominating. He distinguished himself by adding white varieties (usually Viura or Malvasia), which create "chaotic complexity" in his red wines. His style was recognized very quickly and is now a role model for thousands of young Riojan winemakers!

The name Tentenublo, means "ringing bells" and arose from an old local tradition, which wants the sound of the bells to ward off storms and hail that destroyed the grapes. And there's even better...the labels of the Escondite del Ardacho range refer to a species of native lizard that lives on the vines from which the grapes are harvested. In this series, Veriquete took her walks in the specific vineyards!

Tentenublo Veriquete is a blend of the Tempranillo variety, with a small percentage of Garnacha, Malvasia and white Viura. They are grown at an altitude of 600 meters, in the hills of Sierra Cantabria and are 50 to 105 years old, so there is a small production, but an excellent concentration of fruit! Each vine is harvested and vinified separately with minimal intervention, while fermentation takes place spontaneously with native yeasts and the wine is not filtered. After 9 months in second-hand French oak, the result is impressive!

A total of 1767 bottles are being bottled, so you should probably hurry…

In the glass it is a deep ruby. The aromatic intensity of the nose and the composition of the aromas changes with time in the glass and new aromas are revealed, decanting is recommended. Although a bit austere at first, the red ripe fruit and plum are present and the botanical character stands out.

In the mouth it is medium (+) volume with good balance, high acidity and tannins, and aromas of plum, berry, strawberry, sour cherry and chocolate, fully integrated. The aftertaste is long.

VERIQUETE 2019 - TENTENUBLO WINES

PAIR IT

Pair it with lamb shank with red wine and mashed potatoes with herbs, dry-aged striploin, wild boar stew with plums.

Beef stew with red wine

  • 1 kg of boneless beef cut into bits
  • 4 tbsps. flour
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1 cup of dry red wine
  • 1 cube beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp. dry thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pack of small fresh mushrooms, whole
  • baby carrots
  • salt
  • pepper

 

 

Wipe the meat with kitchen paper to absorb excess moisture. Stir in a bowl 3 tablespoons of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, paprika and pepper and sprinkle the meat with the flour mixture.

Sautee the meat in hot olive oil in moderate to strong heat, stirring frequently,  for 4-6 minutes or until it acquires a golden brown color. Remove the meat from the pot. Add the red wine, stirring well to incorporate with the meat residues from the bottom of the pot.

Put the meat back in the pot and add the broth, thyme, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Once it starts boiling, cover the pot, lower the heat in half and allow the meat to cook for about an hour, stirring occasionally. You can accompany your meat with wild rice.
