Wine Maker Notes
Our Evohe Old Vine Tempranillo has a retro twist expressing the pure ripe fruit of the vines which have been grown in this region for centuries. Instead of the traditional heavily-oaked and long aged wines, we have chosen to produce this Tempranillo in the style of our Evohe Old Vine Garnacha. Thus we have a youthful wine with no oak aging which shows the natural flavors of the Tempranillo grape. Our motto is “Sustainable Agriculture with minimal intervention in the production of Wines”. We believe purity is found in simplicity. Our wine techniques include open-vat fermentation using the wild yeasts naturally present on the grapes. These methods honor the wisdom of the generations of Spanish wine-makers who inspired us with their passion. Evohe Old Vine Tempranillo has a dark, ruby-red, cherry color, with violet tones that denote its youth and potential. On the nose, it is a delicate, with marked aromas of red fruits and raspberry. The pallet exhibits a full and fruity wine which expresses the noble Tempranillo grape in a fresh style. Black Currant, Plums, and Ripe Cherries are present and even hints of Chocolate can be found together with balanced, ripe tannins.Evohe Tempranillo Vinas Viejas, which sees no oak, is pure Tempranillo from start to finish. The color is a beautiful black cherry hue with a magenta rim; the bouquet is bright, ripe and vivacious with notes of blackberries, blueberries and black plums, lavender and licorice with sleek slate-like minerals. In the mouth, much is the same, with these luscious black and blue fruit flavors taking on wild touches of mulberry, briers and violets, set into moderately dense and finely-milled tannins allied to lively acidity.Serving suggestions are: grilled meats, vegetables and mushrooms, sausages, cooked fish, rice dishes, foie gras, cured hams and other delicious dishes you might indulge yourself with. Evohe Wines go perfectly with the tapas concept of talking, drinking and eating. The diversity of the ingredients runs parallel to the ever changing topics of conversation, with the wine serving as an undercurrent that brings everything together.
