  • *This wine takes one extra day to ship. Chafandin is Vinas del Jaro's "Reserva" which is only sourced from a very small portion of the overall vineyards in the individual Chafandin block. The terrain in the block is also notable as it has similar convex contours to many of the Grand Cru parcels in Burgundy. This vineyard parcel also has a notable history as the 2003 Chafandin was named “Champion Red Wine of the Year” in the 2006 London International Wine Challenge.

  • Tasting Notes

    "Aromas include butterscotch, chocolate, dark cherries, and nectarines. Flavors include blackberries, blueberries, and red plums. There is a medium body, perfect balance and acidity, and a refreshing, saturated, and minerally finish.

  • Vinas del Jaro vineyards are near a "very prestigious" producer in the Ribera del Duero (Vega Sicilia). The rest of the neighborhood is pretty good too as Peter Sisseck's Hacienda Monasterio vineyards are on the other side of the Vinas de Jaro estate. These vineyards are of course in the "golden mile" of Ribera del Duero vineyards on a perfectly situated south-facing hill which adds a huge amount of depth and complexity to their wines. While on one hand, this estate does produce the traditional range of Spanish wines (Joven, Crianza, Reserva, and Gran Reserva), effectively all of the wines benefit from the overall "Grand Cru" location of where the estate is located. Within the estate, there is also a "single vineyard" site (Chafandin) that has quite a history as the 2003 "Reserva" wine sourced entirely from this parcel was awarded the "Champion Red Wine" prize in 2006 during the very prestigious London International Wine Challenge. The estate's Gran Reserva wine, Sed de Cana, is only made in truly exceptional years from a special selection of grapes from the same Chafandin parcel.

    Vinas del Jaro winemaker, Alvaro, displays winemaking knowledge at its finest which is respecting the grapes and understanding their potential. Each wine produced also feels like a natural extension of the vineyards where the grapes were grown without any additional "intervention" to affect flavor profiles. The end result across the range of wines are very delightful food-friendly wines with great balance and which will be described in more detail in the wine descriptions below.
