Neblerío 2010

Province: Granada
Denominación de Origen: D.O.P Vino de Calidad de Granada

Vintage: 2010

‘Neblerío’ is our 100% Tempranillo made from grapes grown on high-altitude vineyards, situated on the slopes of the Sierras de Tejeda Natural Park to the south-east of Alhama de Granada in Granada province.

The soil here is a striking red limestone, known locally as “Los Rojillos”. The influence of the nearby Sierra Nevada mountain range, and an extraordinary altitude of around 1000m above sea level, ensures the grapes ripen very slowly, helping to a create an elegant wine with soft, balanced tannins.

“Neblerío” is the name the local grape growers give to an atmospheric morning mist which provides the east facing vines with welcome moisture, before being dispersed by the rising sun and winds from the mountains.

The vines are trained using a double cordon system and the grapes are picked by hand, the pickers being careful to avoid the hours when the heat is at its highest, so as the grapes can be brought in during the cool of the early morning and as the sun fades at dusk. Harvest in this region of Granada will take place from late September onwards, often not ending until the second half of October, notably later than other winegrowing regions in southern Spain.

The wine underwent both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in stainless steel tanks and was then given just 3 months in small, 4-year-old French oak barrels to aide its structure and to allow its unique, high altitude Tempranillo characteristics to shine through.

This is a medium bodied wine with flavours of ripe blackberries, a dash of strawberry and a hint of juniper and walnut.

Reviews

“Earthy, mineral , black cherry and blackberry aromas. It’s finely textured and the freshness builds through the palate, reaching a long, intense savoury finish...shows its altitude.”

Sarah Jane Evans MW, BBC Good Food Magazine Wine Editor, Co-Chair of Decanter World Wine Awards for Spain and member of the Gran Orden de Caballeros del Vino

“Red fruits dominate the palate, underpinned by richer black fruits, a touch of blackberry and black cherry. There is a lot happening on the finish - juniper, some walnut and lots of black and red cherry.” (93/100 Points)

The wine underwent both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in stainless steel tanks. No oak was used, in order to allow the unique, high-altitude Tempranillo characteristics to really shine through.

This is a medium bodied wine with expressive aromas of blackberries and strawberry, flavours of ripe cranberry and redcurrant, and a bright finish of cherry with a hint of liquorice.

Reviews

"The reds of Bodegas Tierra Hermosa are rounded and relatively rich, yet without barrel ageing. They have complexity, depth and richness but without oak. There is flavour and aroma, but there is subtlety and elegance. Neblerío 2011 has a super fruit delivery.... blackberry and blackcurrant aromas and flavour. Full on the palate, though still lovely on its own"

Veinte Grados 2010 ('20 Degrees')

Province: Granada
Denominación de Origen: Vino de la Tierra Laderas Del Genil

Vintage: 2010

‘Veinte Grados’ is our blend of Tempranillo (70%), Syrah (20%) and Garnacha (10%) from high-altitude vineyards to the south of Alhama de Granada, high up in the Sierra Tejeda mountains in Granada Province.

These small parcels of steeply terraced, east-facing vines have a soil composition of schist and slate, imparting fresh, mineral notes to the wine. Fragments of marine shells are still to be found amongst the soils here, integrating with the natural irrigation waters, a reminder that this area of Andalucía was once long ago covered with sea, and an explanation perhaps for the gentle, saline back notes in the blend.

The impressive altitude of these vineyards, at an average of around 1200m above sea level, results in an incredible fluctuation in diurnal temperatures of up to 20°C, hence the name of the blend. This nightly temperature drop, which we call “nature’s fridge”, enables us to create a wine packed full of intricate flavours, yet one which exhibits real freshness and a crisp elegance.

Much like the grapes used for our Neblerío wine, the majority of the vines here are trained using a double cordon system. All the grapes are picked by hand during the cool of the early morning and at dusk.

The Tempranillo, Syrah and Garnacha in our 2010 Viente Grados blend all underwent alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The Syrah, which originally hails from a previous vintage, was aged for 12 months in small, three year old French barrels, injecting into the blend a backbone of complexity and structure.

This is a medium bodied wine with aromas of blackberries and ripe cherries, flavours of plum and violets and an enduring hint of pepper and vanilla

Reviews

"The altitude gives the wine a delicious freshness...it has an exotic dark fruit character...I could imagine drinking it with lamb tagine or Iberico pork – but it’s flexible enough to adapt to all kinds of dishes".

Fiona Beckett, Wine Critic for UK national newspaper The Guardian

"The nose has a lovely spiciness, hedgerow fruits and rosehips. The fruit is ripe, the tannins rounded, the richness is balanced by freshness...on the finish a hint of vanilla adding to the complexity". (92/100 Points)

Veinte Grados 2011 ('20 Degrees')

Province: Granada
Denominación de Origen: Vino de la Tierra Laderas Del Genil

Vintage: 2011

‘Veinte Grados’ is our blend of Tempranillo (70%), Syrah (20%) and Garnacha (10%) from high-altitude vineyards to the south of Alhama de Granada, amongst the Sierra Tejeda mountains in Granada Province.

These small parcels of steeply terraced, east-facing vines have a soil composition of schist and slate, imparting fresh, mineral notes to the wine. Fragments of marine shells are still to be found amongst the soils here, integrating with the natural irrigation waters, a reminder that this area of Andalucía was once long ago covered with sea, and an explanation perhaps for the gentle, saline back notes in the blend.

Much like the grapes used for our Neblerío wine, the majority of the vines here are trained using a double cordon system. All the grapes are picked by hand during the cool of the early morning and at dusk.

All the wines in the blend were vinified separately, undergoing both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in stainless steel tanks.

Veinte Grados is a medium bodied wine with complex aromas of black cherries, eucalyptus and coffee, flavours of plums and violets, and an enduring finish of raspberries, spice and a hint of almond.

Reviews

"The reds of Bodegas Tierra Hermosa are rounded and relatively rich, yet without barrel ageing. They have complexity, depth and richness but without oak. With Veinte Grados, it’s the elegance that the taster first notices. It’s delightful on the palate...when the super aromas and flavour really make an impact. You’ll find some damson notes...a little earthy, minerality. There are herbs....a little laurel, a whiff of wild thyme. Then the fruit comes back to delight again...there’s a mid to long length with a lovely spicy kick."
