  • *This wine takes one extra day to ship. Vina Gormaz Crianza is from Goblet-trained, ungrafted vines (average age of 80 years), that sit on sandy/calcareous loam soils in La Rasa at over 3,000 feet in elevation.
    Applause-worthy stuff in its ability to provide a top-level Ribera del Duero palate experience at a fraction of the price of some of the region’s more well-known names.

    "A compact nose with blackberry and integrated oak aromas leads to a flush, round palate that's balanced and whole. Blackberry, black plum and cassis flavors are ripe and pleasing, with a touch of raw oak in support. An edgy finish with grating tannins suggests giving this as much air as possible before serving. Drink through 2027".

     

  • Viña Gormaz

    Viña Gormaz, a former cooperative that went into individual ownership in late 1970’s, is the undisputed leader in Ribera del Duero’s Eastern sub region of Soria – This zone has until recently been more or less overlooked, and we hold it in high esteem due to the unheard of concentrations of old vines that sit on original rootstock and continue to be propogated in that manner today. Fans of dusty, intense Ribera are wise to explore Soria’s individual villages deeply. You can think of grape sourcing in Ribera much as you do in Burgundy – Individual families own and control small plots, sometimes as minimal as a row or two of vines. As is the case with all of Viña Gormaz’s offerings, grapes come from 22 individual villages in Soria. Winemaker Maria Jose Garcia has been leading all activities here since 1999. It is worth noting that Viña Gormaz was one of twelve original wineries registered to Ribera del Duero upon the DOC’s creation in 1982.
