Up in the Northern hill-slopes rising out of the Duero valley, the Aragon family have a couple of truly special patches of very gnarled old Tempranillo vines, 60 and 80 years' age. Soil is slightly heavier and more minerally than the sandy valley floor, but heavy clay is avoided. Wines of elegance and concentration; savoury with great earthy perfumes.
Cillar de Silos is archetypal of the modernisation of the Spanish wine scene, where great old vine material is taken out of co-op production and transformed into low crop, concentrated, fleshy, elegant modern estate wine.
Young and fresh this wine displays complex aromas of fruit with liquor, hints of licorice and toffee with mineral undertones. In the mouth it is flavoursome, fleshy, elegant, balanced and fresh. A very elegant wine, mid length and savoury. 100% Tempranillo.
