Chafandin Tinto Fino, Ribera del Duero, Spain
Chafandin Tinto Fino is a red wine from the DO Ribera del Duero made by Viñas del Jaro. Viñas del Jaro is a small château-style winery that has been making exceptional wines on the banks of the Douro for almost twenty years. The manufacturing house is located in Pesquera de Duero, behind a small forest of centuries-old oaks called Jaro and which gives it its name. This is a small winery that takes great care of the oenology and dominates the 46 hectares of vineyard that grows in the Finca el Quiñón.
Chafandín is pure Tempranillo. The grapes originate from old vines about 40 years old from Pago de Chafandín. The wine is aged in new wooden French barrels.
Elegant and balanced, creamy and polished with good acidity and well-integrated tannins. The aged notes harmonise beautifully with the fruit with a fantastic long finish. This wine has great aromatic intensity with ripened red fruit combined with fine toasted notes.
