Beronia 198 Barricas 2012


The Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo grapes were cold macerated prior to fermentation for
several days. Alcoholic fermentation followed, at a temperature kept below 26oC, with regular
pumping over. Next, we started the ageing process for Beronia 198 Barricas Reserva Especial
2012, with the wine left for two years in mixed oak barrels made of American oak staves and
French oak ends. Lastly, the wine was bottled and left to age for a further two years in bottle.
Beronia 198 Barricas Reserva Especial 2012 is a deep, intense garnet colour. On the nose it first
displays notes of ripe fruit, prunes and dried apricots, with cocoa in the background. Balsamic
notes emerge next, adding freshness, along with nutty aromas. In the mouth it displays
remarkable elegant tannins and balanced acidity, which deliver great freshness, followed by
hints of chocolate and cocoa on the palate, culminating in a sweet finish. This is a rounded, long,
balanced wine, best enjoyed when drunk unhurriedly.
Ideal for drinking with roasts, stews, grilled meat, cured meat and mature cheese. Recommended for drinking until 2032.
