- Bodegas Asenjo & Manso Ceres 2006 Product #23831 (In Stock)
A new estate for Jonas and one that is finally getting much-deserved distribution here. The estate spreads out over 40 hectares and consists entirely of bush-trained Tempranillo vines ranging from 10 to 100 years old. The owners work their estate naturally – no chemical sprays or pesticides and natural fertilizers used sparingly.
Ceres is the estate’s “entry-level” wine, but there’s nothing “low-end” about it at all! It’s 100% Tempranillo aged carefully in 100% new American oak – not that you’d guess that from the wine! Generous aromas of red berries and plums are accented with notes of fresh hay, black pepper, spice and earth. The flavors are ripe and deep but retain lovely elegance and purity. You’ll find dark red fruits, spice, and dark chocolate in the middle and then a long, complex, lingering finish at the end. Best of all –the price! The 2005 Ceres released in the US at $34; buying direct from Jonas cuts the price a lot!
