Almate Tempranillo Alfredo Maestro, unsulphured, deep, ripe Spanish red. Almate Tempranillo from Alfredo Maestro is an organic, unsulphured, dark coloured, richly scented wine with a nose of ripe fruit, lavender and toffee with notes of rose. On the palate minerals, plum, cherry and berry compote. This Tempranillo sees only old oak barrels for 4 months, it is ripe, soft and delicious easy drinking. A superb value natural wine for any occasion. This is wine with absolutely no sulphur and as such shows a little reduction at times but this quickly disappears with some aeration to reveal the warmth and depth of the wine.

Alfredo Maestro Tejero’s vineyards are located within the Ribera del Duero D.

O., but Alfredo prefers not to participate in the D.O., so the wines are Vino de la Tierra de Castillo y León. His are completely natural wines, with no sulphur added in the vineyard or the winery. All vineyard treatments are natural, and many of them follow biodynamic practices. The Castrillo de Duero is 100% Tempranillo. Fermented in small stainless steel vats, and aged for 16 months in old French oak barrels. A rich Tempranillo that maintains its vibrancy, with great structure. The Almate is darkly coloured, opaque and mouth filling with lavender and toffee notes that stay from nose to finish while only tiny bit of reduction, maybe because of the low sulphur, shows on the nose, but quickly disappears to allow a sweet nose of roses, mineral and red berry fruits which lead to a dense palate of plum, cherry and berry compote.

    This wine was recommended in the shop and it didn’t disappoint. Just wish we had bought more than one. Felt great in the morning too.

    Feels and tastes real. A perfectly balanced, mildly spiced red. Good with any food as well as on its own. Impressive overnight delivery. Thank you!
