Martin Berdugo Barrica
An honest and intense wine with 4 months in oak. Velvet in the mouth, full bodied with agreeable tannins, perfectly integrated with the fruit, and subtle touches of oak
Martin Berdugo are a modern, progressive, family company; easily witnessed by the contemporary architecture of the winery and the minimalist ‘spot’ motive on the labels. Less obvious though is their constant evolving and experimentation with the wine making.
Martin Berdugo looks for improvement at every harvest and have a passion to bring what they call an “element of difference” to those who share their taste and wine philosophy: one of style, flair, communication, discovery and “the creation of unforgettable moments”.
2016 – 91 Points – James Suckling
Intense forest fruits with toasted notes followed by more complex fresh fruit and hints of vanilla. Tannins are well balanced with fruit with a velvety aftertaste and retronasal return to the initial aromas.
Will provide good drinking for four years from vintage.
About the Producer
Bodegas Martin Berdugo
Matrin Berdugo was founted in 2000 and their estate consists of a single 87ha vineyard of Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) grapes located and surrounded by the Duero River; a major part of the vineyard is on alluvial beds covered with large stones.
The quality of the wines is influenced by a number of natural factors and, importantly, an attitude that “everything counts” – the use of leading edge technology to help in grape selection, meticulous spring and summer pruning, weather predictions and terroir profiling.
The location of the cellar – surrounded by the vineyard – guarantees the reception of the manually harvested grapes in optimal conditions, where after the wine is vinified in sixteen 25,000 litre stainless steel vats and aged in 360, mainly American, oak barrels.
