Trus Crianza comes from 20-40 year old vines, growing on calcareous clay. The vinyeards – Piñel de Abajo, Pesquera de Duero, Nava de Roa and Moradillo de Roa – are at an altitude between 800 and 850 metres above sea level.
Made from 100% Tempranillo, fermentation is accompanied by gentle pumping over and temperature control with subsequent malolactic fermentation before ageing in barrels for 12 months in varying 225 ltr barrels. Natural stabilisation is allowed before bottling – without aggressive filtering – 18 months after harvest.
‘Trus’ stands for Tierra, Roble, Uve and Sol – Earth, Oak, Grape and Sun.
It is an acronym used to symbolise the coming together of these four natural elements to create perfect wines.
EARTH. A rich variety of minerals in the ground contribute to the personality of the grapes.
OAK barrels hand crafted in the best tradition and used to perfectly compliment the wine as it gentle ages in the cellars.
GRAPES hand selected from the finest local varietals, best adapted to the local conditions of Pesquera in the Ribera del Duero.
SUN “the element that leads.” Plenty of sun throughout the year brings top quality grapes, perfectly ripe for the vintage each September.
With a medium depth of colour, the nose is very intense and complex. Memories of ripe black fruit and liquorice appear, along with notes of its ageing in barrels, spices and balsam. It has a friendly mouthfeel, thanks to its mature soft tannins which provide a structure that gives a long finish combining a ripe fruit aftertaste with smoky and spicy retro-nasal sensations.
Can be enjoyed now or in the next 3-4 years.
About the Producer
Bodegas Trus was born in 1999 with the aspiration and idea of producing wines of great quality and personality that are a true reflection of “pais y pericia” – ‘country and expertise’.
Bodegas Trus is located in the cradle of the Ribera del Duero. The quality of its wines is intimately related to the provenance of the grapes. Their vineyards are in the triangle of Pesquera, a privileged area due to its ideal micro climate and height. Trus benefits from the orientation of their vineyards, mainly north west, within the valley up to Pinel de Abajo at an altitude of 800 metres.
