Fariña Colegiata Campus 2014

This is the Fariña premium wine. According to their website it is a limited production, terroir-driven wine made from 100% Tinta de Toro from pre-phyloxera, hand-picked, bush vines up to 140 years old and was voted one of the top 3 best wines in Spain under 30EUR . It undergoes maceration for up to 25 days. Fermentation at 30 – 32ºC in stainless fermentation tanks before undergoing malolactic fermentation in 16,000l wooden tanks. 15 months in new premium French and American oak.15 months in barrel, 2 years in bottle.

The wine has a very intense dark purple colour with a medium pronounced scent full of fruit: cherry and strawberry. There’s also some balsamic and smokey earth/wood tones. Very promising scent.

This a a full bodied dry red wine with a long finish and low to medium tannins and acidity. It was described by much of the group as warming and filling.

It has good red berry flavours including cherry with wood tones coming through as well. It was by far the favourite of the night.
