Bodegas Arrocal, produce four styles in the Meloso range, the Crianza is a classic Ribera de Duero, having been aged for 12 months in oak barrels, 80% French and 20% American. This is a fine expression of the Tempranillo grape, with complex smoky red cherry fruit aromas and obvious fruit . A medium to full-bodied wine, with prevalent but silky tannins. Try it with cold meats particularly the Iberico Ham, local to the region, order rich tomato based sauces.
The Arrocal Winery is located in Gumiel de Mercado, in the heart and best winegrowing sector of the sprawling Ribera del Duero. The winery is a relatively new adventure, commencing in 1999, but this belies a historic family tradition of winemaking in the Arroyo family, who hail way back from this fabulous medieval town. These Tempranillo beauties are fresh and fruit driven with just sufficient oak aging to bring the complexity up.
Deep purple, just starting to spread at the rim, elegant, complex and heady, a sensual nose. Chocolate, Brazil nut, coconut shavings, there is richness, good weight on the palate, sour cherries, chewy, almost unctuous, but with nice austerity, long raisiny finish. Impressive stuff.
