Colección Nº 1 comes from La Viña de Andrés, planted (Richter 110) in the La Liende district in 1985. Grafted the following year at the hands of Don Andrés, with the tempranillo variety sourced from an exhaustive stock of family vines. This collection springs from respect for the land and for its tradition, from start to finish. From the importance of classic viticulture practice and minimal yields.

Contador 2018

Contador 2018 has a red cherry color with very high intensity and brightness. In the nose, there are red and black fruits very mature, and appear the aromatic herbs (thyme, rosemary, lavender and fennel). It also shows a marked mineral character with fine wood notes. The palate is very fine and powerful, also very bulky. It shows a great balance between fruit and oak. Final aftertaste is long and intense. It’s very ripe and tasty. It has high deepness and a great balance. Endless. 100% Tempranillo "I like the austerity and seriousness of the 2018 Contador, which has very similar parameters as the 2019 but comes through as fresher and more balanced, with very fine tannins and pungent flavors and a long, dry and chalky finish. It's approachable now but should improve with time in bottle. Fermentation and élevage were the same as in 2019—oak vat and 20 months in new barriques, which are being absorbed without problems. It's rich and powerful but with elegance and lots of balance. It should be a classical and long-lived vintage of Contador. 4,500 bottles produced." - Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker

Contador 2015

The red flagship 2015 Contador was selected from vines over 60 years of age, and it fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in new French oak barrels for 20 months. It feels like a great vintage for the top bottling, as it has enough ripeness and concentration but is also terribly elegant, floral and nuanced. 2015 was a warm and dry year with the risk of excessive wines, but this Contador is beautifully balanced and has a rare combination of concentration and lightness. There is a nice core of freshness that lifts the wine up and gives it length. 6,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2017. 100% Tempranillo
